  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

    ($366) Very deep, sweet nose features apple, spices, iodine and resiny oak. A huge wine of great volume, sweetness and depth. Really explodes in the mouth, but with its perfectly integrated acidity it comes across as spherical and utterly smooth. Almost deceptively accessible today owing to its balance and mouthfilling richness. Finishes with great sweetness and persistence. It will be fascinating to compare this and the Cabotte six or seven years down the road.

    The barest trace of wood remains on the nose to frame the elegant, pure and almost airy white flower and green apple aromas that are beginning to display the initial signs of pending maturity that merge seamlessly into intense, powerful, brooding, thick, fantastically intense flavors that are wonderfully textured and stain the palate. This is quite masculine in style and the intensity does a slow but inexorable build from the mid-palate to an explosive finish. A flat out wonderful Monty that should last two decades with the proper cellaring though it should be drinking well within 2 to 3 years.

    The spice-scented 2000 Montrachet is a plump, toasted pear, nut, and mineral-flavored wine. Satin-textured and juicy, this medium-bodied offering has outstanding concentration, grip, and depth.

    Very pale colour and some almond flavours. Big and bold with a beautiful silky texture. Confident and thoroughly swallowable even now. Quite evolved already but there is still lots there. Savoury finish with notes of coffee.

Eighty-six hectares of grand and premier cru vineyards. One hundred thirty total hectares in the Cote d'Or. Eighty crus produced each vintage. Two hundred seventy-five years of history. Bouchard Père et Fils is truly an institution in Beaune. The Maison was founded by father and son Michel and Joseph Bouchard in 1731, and the family wine merchant business has grown steadily ever since, taking any opportunity to add to its vineyard holdings along the way. Not to be completely overshadowed by its wines, Bouchard conducts business in the very center of Beaune in the old Chateau de Beaune, whose storied past rivals that of the Maison. In 1995, the Champagne family of Joseph Henriot took control of Bouchard, resulting in improvements in quality, not to mention the addition of more top-level vineyard sites. Reds of particular interest include the flagship Beaune Grèves Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus and the Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As for whites, the Meursault Genevrières, Meursault Perrières, Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet are all great interpreters of their particular sites, exhibiting the many nuances of grand and premier cru Chardonnay.
