Nice dark garnet color with brown to mauve shades. Complex bouquet associating perfumes of jammy red fruit, a floral note of peony, with a hint of chocolate. Harmonious and deep palate, with a beautiful maturity and dense but fine tannins. An attractive wine.
92 Points - Decanter Part of the Bouchard range since 1907, this wine features 17 of the extensive lineup of Beaune premiers crus, grown on a mixture of soil types. Part of Frédéric Weber's skill lies in the blending of all these different cuvées to produce a wine that's textured, floral and sweet, with subtle reduction, some whole-bunch spice and a backdrop of 35% new wood.
92 Points- Wine & Spirits Brisk, bold and juicy, this wine glows with red and purple fruit and floral notes. As it opens over the course of several days, any sense of compression in the coal-black tannins turns toward detail, those tannins layered into a satiny mille-feuille of savory custard and rose petals. This is a selection from Bouchard’s parcels in 17 premier cru vineyards, all vinified separately before blending.
92 Points - Wilfred Wong of Wine The 2017 Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Beaune de Château Premier Cru flows bright and lively on the palate. This wine exhibits aromas and flavors of red and black fruit. Enjoy it with a roast leg of lamb.
