The pungent nose combines reduction and as yet unabsorbed sulfur so be sure to decant this if you're going to open a bottle in the name of "science". The palate impression of the wonderfully refined middle weight flavors manages to be at once notably rich while retaining good delineation while simultaneously delivering excellent depth and persistence on the well-balanced finale. This is focused but not especially tight or austere and this should drink reasonably well after only a few years of cellaring. Jun 2016, www.burghound.com, Drink: 2022+



Perfumed aromas of mint and spices, plus a suggestion of malic acidity. Concentrated, savory and intense, conveying a strong spice character and a tactile impression of salinity. Offers a felicitous combination of density and energy, finishing with a lively note of white pepper. This very chalky parcel at the top of the appellation always produces crisp wine, notes winemaker Weber. (I should note that the Meursault Poruzots and the Puligny-Montrachet Combettes and Folatières were still finishing their malos in late spring and were not available to taste.)

The Meursault Genevrieres is a classic … and a further notch up the quality ladder. It’s made from a plot located in the middle upper part (Dessus) of Genevrieres – Bouchard Pere et Fils is the largest owner on Genevrieres with a 2,65 ha plot. The bouquet is vibrant and energetic with a fine stony minerality. On the palate delicate mineral driven fruit .. it’s pure, focused and energetic. A very fine Genevrieres … impressive effort.

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.
