Bouchard Père & Fils


2019 Bouchard Pere & Fils Meursault Les Clous...$64.99 / 750ml
This elegant Meursault reminds me very much of the best wines from this appellation from the 1970s and 80s. Only medium-bodied, with delicate pear, apple and lemon aromas. Long, silky and filigree finish. What’s the secret to its 1er Cru quality? Apart from very good winemaking, it’s a high altitude site that has benefited from climate change. Drink or hold.
Rated 94 / 100 James Suckling
2018 Bouchard & Fils Chambolle-Musigny Pinot Noir...$74.99 / 750ml
Silky and exuding violet, blackberry and black currant, this red is about as alluring as a young Burgundy gets. It firms up on the finish with refined, cocoa powder tannins. Vibrant and long too. Drink now through 2028. 74 cases imported
Rated 93 / 100 Wine Spectator
