RATINGS

90The Wine Advocate

...aromas of musky peach, candied pineapple, honeycomb and orchard fruit that appears to be marked by a touch of botrytis. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and textural, with a fleshy core of fruit but tangy underlying acids and a precise but aromatic finish.

16Jancis Robinson

A little salty on the nose and even more so on the palate. Very crisp, a hint of oak toast, just enough fruit weight for the acidity.

PRODUCER

Bouchard Pere et Fils

This Beaune-based domaine is one of the largest and most venerable in Burgundy. It was founded in 1731 by Michel Bouchard as a textile sales and distribution company. But twenty years later Michel’s son Joseph acquired vineyards in Volnay in the famous Les Caillerets climat and started producing wine. Over the centuries the family continued to acquire exceptional vineyards throughout the Côte d’Or. For nine generations the Bouchard family ran the estate, creating notable wines, and ran their own negociant business. In 1986 the Bouchards built a new state-of-the-art facility and in 1995 they sold the estate to the French Champagne house Joseph Henriot. With more than 300 acres of vineyards in various parts of Burgundy, Bouchard Pere et Fils produces Grand Crus, Premiers Crus and other wines. It makes red and white Burgundies and is especially well-known for Grand Cru Chardonnays.
