Average critic rating : 94.33 points



Once again very generous but not completely dominant wood serves as a borderline intrusive backdrop to the more elegant and spicier nose of various wild red berries that display added breadth in the form of earth, stone and floral nuances. There is excellent verve to the intensely mineral-driven and overtly powerful big-bodied flavors that deliver strikingly good persistence on the impeccably well-balanced finish. While this will improve over the next 15 to perhaps even 20 years it should be reasonably civilized after "only" 8 to 10 years of cellar time. Apr 2016, www.burghound.com, Drink: 2029+



Good dark red. Ethereal aromas of red cherry, spices and dried flowers, plus a hint of chocolate liqueur. Wonderfully intense, seamless and lush, but with terrific integrated acidity giving punch to the very youthful cherry and rose petal flavors. The splendid rising, saline finish features fine-grained, glistening tannins and strong supporting fruit. Very alive and evolving slowly; the wine's explosive back end suggests that it has outstanding potential. Jan 2016, www.vinous.com



The Chambertin Clos de Beze is a intense and slightly understated wine. The bouquet is currently somewhat closed showing juicy red berry fruit brought forward by a powerful and tightly knit earthy minerality. On the palate intense and powerful for the vintage … very tightly knit yet still quite transparent. It has a lovely sweet core of mid-palate fruit – juicy and energetic. It’s a mighty terroir … and this wine wi need 15 years or more to unfold. Impressed by the combination of intensity and the filigree refinement of the fruit. May 2016, www.winehog.org, Drink: 2030+

Bouchard Père & Fils is one of Burgundy’s most important houses, and the largest vineyard holder in the Côte d’Or with 130 hectares of vineyards. It’s holdings include 12 hectares of grand cru vineyards, with significant plots in Corton and Corton-Charlemagne, Le Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet. It holds more than 70 hectares of premier cru vineyards, most of which are in the Côte de Beaune, including one of Beaune’s most famous wines: Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus.

The company is owned by the Henriot group, which took over in 1995. Run from their impressive headquarters in Beaune, Bouchard has been making better and better wines in the past twenty years, and can be considered a benchmark producer of both red and white Burgundy.

Bouchard’s holdings in Chevalier-Montrachet are their jewel, and they hold Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte in its entirety. This vineyard sits just above Bouchard’s holding of Le Montrachet, and is one of the finest examples of Chardonnay. The house also has grand cru holdings in Chambertin, Clos de Vougeot, Echézeaux and Bonne Mares in the Côte de Nuits.
