Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru 2017

"From the same grape supplier as Chapelle-Chambertin. Here the colour is a little bit fresher and the nose too is not so uniformly black – more a dark red approach. This retains some elegance, with a classy full-bodied red fruit across the piece, some subtlety to the detail, ripe coulis de framboise, a faint appearance of acidity and very good length. A little limestone coolness behind. More discretion, which is to be welcomed." -Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

Domaine Bouchard Pére et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 2018

R750.00 inc. VAT
"Bouchard Pére et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 2018, There is a whiff of reduction but not so much as to materially suppress the brooding and deeply pitched sauvage and violet-inflected dark berry fruit-suffused nose. The rich, intense and subtly mineral-driven medium weight flavors conclude in a youthfully austere and impressively long finale. I particularly like the depth of this firmly structured effort that is going to require 8 to perhaps as much as 12 years of cellaring to arrive at its peak." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Bouchard Pere et Fils Meursault Les Clous 2018

R775.00 inc. VAT
Bouchard Père et Fils Meursault “Les Clous” Village 2018 "A ripe but cool nose features no exotic influences on the petrol and mineral reduction-suffused nose where additional notes of wood, lemon rind, green apple and acacia lurk in the background. The delicious, round and attractively mineral-driven middle weight flavors possess good depth on the clean and moderately dry and slightly warm finale. This is a solid Meursault villages that is marked by the vintage but still worth a look. Note that it could easily be approached now." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Bourgogne Pinot Noir La Vignée 2019

R335.00 inc. VAT
"Bouchard Père et Fils Bourgogne Pinot Noir La Vignée 2019, earthy aromas of plum and black cherry precede nicely sleek, delicious and vibrant flavors that conclude in a dusty and bitter pit fruit-inflected finale where a hint of youthful austerity arises. This is pretty enough though not especially complex, at least not yet." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Bouchard Père & Fils Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2017

"This currently displays a similar wood-framed nose as the Beaux Monts as it lacks a bit of freshness; to be fair, it's not fatal but it does raise minor concerns that it may not recover. With that said, there is excellent concentration to the muscular and quite serious large-scaled flavors that display fine intensity and mid-palate vibrancy, all wrapped in a mouth coating and extract-rich if slightly warm finish. Again, my range assumes that the absence of aromatic freshness will not persist over time." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Bouchard Père & Fils Bonnes Mares Grand Cru 2017

"A generous application of wood and menthol can be found on the dark pinot fruit, spice, floral and newly turned earth aromas. The rich and muscular if rather supple big-bodied flavors possess a caressing mouth feel, indeed even velvety, before culminating in an impressively persistent finish where the only nit is a touch of warmth." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Bouchard Père & Fils Nuits St. Georges “Les Cailles” Premier Cru 2016

"Here the oak/menthol influence on the spicy aromas of plum, cassis and soft earth is more moderate though it's still far from subtle. There is both excellent volume and precision to the delicious, sophisticated and energetic medium-bodied flavors that possess a taut muscularity before concluding in a gorgeously complex and persistent finish. This is pretty much textbook Les Cailles though one that is also clearly in need of extended cellaring." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Bouchard Père & Fils Nuits St. Georges “Les Cailles” 2017

"This too lacks a bit of freshness on the overtly spiced and less obviously wood aromas of black cherry and violet. There is slightly better freshness on the palate thanks to the evident minerality on adds a touch of lift to the mildly woody finish where the supporting tannins are firm but not hard. Like the Le Corton, I found this to be somewhat disappointing as it's normally an excellent wine." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Bouchard Père & Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 2017

"An admirably discreet oak influence is present on the relatively high-toned red berry fruit scents that express additional breadth in the form of earth, humus and underbrush. The mid-palate of the middle weight flavors isn't quite as dense as that of the Vosne though there is slightly better precision to the saline, youthfully austere and bitter cherry-inflected finish." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Bouchard Père et Fils Meursault “Les Clous” Village 2017

R695.00 inc. VAT
"An appealingly fresh nose displays cool, airy and citrusy aromas of apple, pear, white flower and soft wood nuances. There is both good richness and energy to the nicely detailed and stony flavors that possess a generous mid-palate mouth feel, all wrapped in a dry and youthfully austere finish. This is a quality Meursault villages." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
