meursault genevriÈres 1er cru 2010 (Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils)

“Bright, pale yellow. Lemon, spices and smoky minerality on the nose. Silky on entry, then expands to fill the mouth with rich yet brisk flavors of lemon, dusty stone and vanillin oak. Good acidity gives the wine excellent cut but there’s nothing austere about this very nicely balanced premier cru. The captivating rising finish shows a lightly smoky quality and noteworthy finesse.” Score: 92 (Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, Sept. 2012).

meursault perriÈres 1er cru 2010 (Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils)

“The 2010 Perrières is a knockout with its superbly elegant nose that offers the hallmark mineral reduction and pure floral and white-fleshed fruit aromas that are very much in keeping with the refined flavors that seem constructed directly from the essence of stone. There is plenty of dry extract that imparts a textured feel to the mid-palate, all wrapped in a strikingly long finish that delivers outstanding length. In a word, terrific. Score: 93 (Allen Meadows, Burghound.com)

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2010 (Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils)

“Good bright, pale yellow. Very pure, reticent aromas of lemon, lime and white flowers. Dry and penetrating to the point of painful, with pristine flavors of crushed stone, lime, lemon and ripe but lightly bitter pomelo. Pure energy: this makes the Cabottes seem almost creamy by comparison. Finishes with intense crushed stone flavor and outstanding cut and lift. For the cellar.

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru 2010 (Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils)

“Very pure aromas of lemon peel, flowers and nutty, vanillin oak. At once juicy and supple, with terrific energy to leaven the wine’s atypical richness. Very tactile, mouthfilling grand cru from a yield of just 30 hectoliters per hectare. Finishes stony and sweet, with outstanding breadth and length. Should age gracefully.” Score: 94(+?)

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru 2009 (Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils)

“Very pale, green-tinged color. Captivating high-pitched aromas of lavender, herbs and dusty stone. Rich on entry, giving a dense, fine-grained, almost sweet impression, then surprising acidity and minerality enliven the middle palate. The finish conveys a slightly tannic impression but remains smooth and suave, not to mention very long. This classy Chevalier will need time to express itself”. Score – 94(+?). (Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar)

Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte 2006 (Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils)

“Here the aromatic profile is less elegant than that of the Chevalier but actually more complex and as it virtually always is, it seems to combine most of the elegance of a classic Chevalier with most of the power and depth of a classic Montrachet though from one vintage to another, it can reflect more of the character of one than the other. In 2006, this is more Montrachet than Chevalier. Either way, it’s a terrific wine and also more than worth buying if you can find it. Don’t miss. Score – 96. (Allen Meadows, burghound.com)

Montrachet Grand Cru 2009 (Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils)

“This is also notably ripe yet remains very fresh; indeed there is noticeable restraint to the cool, pure and quite dense floral, citrus and orchard fruit aromas that included spiced pear, apple and both yellow and white peach. The powerful and almost painfully intense flavors ooze dry extract that buffers the quite firm acid spine that shapes the driving and explosively long finish where ample minerality surfaces. This is a sizeable but not truly massive effort that remains exceptionally well-balanced despite its density. Terrific potential”. Score – 94-96 (Allen Meadows, Burghound.com)

Volnay clos des chÊnes 1er Cru 2009 (Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils)

Noticeable but not dominant wood influence fights a bit with the otherwise fresh, cool, airy and ripe raspberry liqueur, plum and floral aromas. The reserved and moderately austere medium weight flavors exude a fine minerality that continues onto the powerful, linear and lingering finish. Like the Grèves, this is also quite compact and not showing much today yet it’s clear that there is excellent underlying material and the balance should enable this to age exceptionally well. Sweet spot [i.e., Excellent Value]. Outstanding. Drink: 2022+. Score: 92 (Allen Meadows, burghound.com, April 2012)

Volnay Caillerets Ancienne Cuvee Carnot 1er Cru 2008 (Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils)

“Around 60% of the crop that informed Bouchard’s 2008 Volnay Caillerets Ancien Cuvee Carnot was spared by the July hail, and around 40% of that remainder declassified. But these circumstances still leave 8-9,000 bottles worth, which I tasted from tank. Musky narcissus, smoky Lapsang black tea, and black fruits on the nose lead to a silken-textured yet invigorating, subtly tart but berry-ripe palate suffused with chalk and savory salinity. This finishes with precisely the sort of “animated interchange of fruit, mineral, and inner-mouth floral elements” I credited to the 2006, and here the effect is both strikingly buoyant and positively reverberative. A bottle opened 24 hours earlier (for Michel Bettane, as it happens) had not lost any of its allure. I would look for at least 15 years of excitement”. Score 92 – 93 (David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate)

pommard rugiens 1er Cru 2010 (domaine Bouchard Père & Fils)

This also displays soft if not invisible wood influence. There is notably better complexity than the Pézerolles to the layered and expressive nose of wild cherries, raspberries and wet stone. There is excellent power to the impressively delineated and voluminous flavors that also brim with both a fine minerality and plenty of palate coating dry extract. I very much like the sense of harmony and balance here on the linear and driving finish. Sweet spot [i.e., Excellent Value]. Outstanding. Drink: 2022+. Score: 92 (Allen Meadows, burghound.com, April 2012)

Beaune Greves Vigne de L’Enfant Jesus 1er Cru 2010 (Monopole Bouchard Père & Fils)

“A don’t miss wine. Noticeable though not overt wood influence sets off a very ripe nose composed of liqueur of plum, cassis and wild raspberry aromas. There is excellent richness to the round and relatively powerful medium weight flavors blessed with an abundance of dry extract that buffers the otherwise very firm, long and serious finish. This is also notably austere and extremely compact at present and as such it seems reasonably clear that it will not be a good candidate for early drinking. 93/2020+” (Allen Meadows, Burghound.com)

Clos vougeot Grand Cru 2010 (Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils)

“This is really quite aromatically refined, indeed the expressive nose is highly perfumed and speaks of floral, plum and black cherry scents layered with a subtle earthiness. The sense of refinement continues onto the palate as the focused, intense and sleekly muscular flavors evidence good power on the balanced, long and only moderately austere finish. As Clos de Vougeot typically goes, this is a very refined example. 94/2025+” (Allen Meadows, Burghound.com)

182733 $189.00
Chapelle Chambertin Grand Cru 2009 (Bouchard Père & Fils)

Strong reduction blocks the nose though there is plenty of energy and punch to the detailed, powerful and lightly mineral-driven flavors that possess both good size and solid weight, especially on the vibrant, balanced and seriously persistent finish. There is fine depth of material here and while this is somewhat awkward today, I see no reason why this shouldn’t be excellent in time (91-94)/2024+ (Allen Meadows, Burghound.com)
