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 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 Gevrey-Chambertin 2016

R724.99 inc. VAT
"As one would reasonably expect this is aromatically completely different with its array of humus, underbrush, red and dark currant and whiff of wood aromas. The cool, pure and well-detailed middle weight flavors possess fine length on the mildly austere finish that is notably less complex, at least for the moment." - 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 & 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 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 Pommard “Rugiens” Premier Cru 2014

"Like the Pommard "1er" the wood treatment is more discreet though again not imperceptible on the essence of red currant, spice and soil scented nose. There is really lovely intensity to the mineral-driven, focused and powerful middle weight plus flavors that possess a taut muscularity before terminating in long but again ever-so-mildly dry finish and it's far from clear at this early point that it's ever going to completely harmonize. I have my doubts in any event." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Bouchard Père & Fils Savigny-lès-Beaune “Les Lavières” Premier Cru 2017

"Soft wood combines with cool and pure but decidedly ripe red and dark pinot fruit, spice and marked earth/sauvage nuances. The delicious and round medium weight flavors are quite generously proportioned with an opulent mid-palate and much better concentration, all wrapped in a lingering and nicely complex finale. I like this quite a bit though there is a nit which is noticeable warmth and while it's not enough to ruin the balance, neither is it invisible." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Bouchard Père & Fils Vosne-Romanée Village 2017

R895.00 inc. VAT
"Like the Chambolle, the red and dark currant aromas are overtly spicy with Asian-style tea nuances that include a hint of mandarin orange peel. The delicious, generous and caressing medium weight flavors are quite seductive if much less mineral-suffused on the somewhat monotone finish. In short, this is certainly pretty but it's not especially deep." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
