Bouchard Père & Fils Bourgogne la Vignée 2017

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Mean and austere on the nose with some raw oak, mint and light meaty notes. On the palate, this was a touch soft and chewy with some mineral earth notes and herbal nuances. Not much is going on here, though the finish does show some lingering bitter tannins. 85 pts

Bouchard Père et Fils:
Contrary to many wine growing regions, one of the particularities of Burgundy is the complete lack of the mixing of different grape varieties. There are two main varieties in Burgundy : Pinot Noir for the red wines; Chardonnay for the white wines. The reputation of the Grands Vins fins de Bourgogne is based on two varieties alone : Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. As early as 1866, Dr Jules Guyot i... Read more
Contrary to many wine growing regions, one of the particularities of Burgundy is the complete lack of the mixing of different grape varieties. There are two main varieties in Burgundy : Pinot Noir for the red wines; Chardonnay for the white wines. The reputation of the Grands Vins fins de Bourgogne is based on two varieties alone : Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. As early as 1866, Dr Jules Guyot in his book on viticulture of the centre north of France, wrote that: " the essence of the fine wines of the Côte d'Or, is the grape variety, the Pineau Noir or Noirien for the red wines; the Pineau Blanc or Chardenet for the white wines ".

Shy and a bit spicy on the nose. Slow to emerge smoke, earth and rhubarb notes lend this a less ripe and slight chunky tone. Soft and bright in the mouth, this is rather lacy and pure with red berry fruit. It is a bit on the simple side, but as balanced and fresh as this is, it is attractive. 88 pts

This opens sappy and sweet with oak to the fore and a background of licorice spice. There is a deep, roast meat, veal reduction edge to the fruit and high tones of cola and floral tones. In the mouth this is bright with a bit of an extracted feel. Simple cherry and cranberry fruit is presented in a modernish package of clumsy tannins and elevated alcohol that yields an inelegant whole though the finish does offer a pleasant medicinal note. 86pts

Sweet and sappy on the nose with very spicy fruit. Still a bit rigid in the mouth with good acids and just a touch of tannin sticking out. Still youthful but not particularly exciting. 87pts

Nice bottle sweetness and limestone minerality here with a gamy, smoky edge to the fading fruit. Very friendly in the mouth with nice freshness and fine balance. Gently sweet and still surprisingly vibrant. A pleasant surprise 88pts

09 CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET CLOS DU CHATEAU, 1ER CRU Chateau de la Maltroye , White Wine, 750ml Always a winner, this shows a purity and vibrance unusual for the vintage. A mingling of peaches and fresh citrus, laced with white flowers and flowing minerality. Stylishly serious - and most seriously delicious! https://www.burgundywinecompany.com/index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=57&zenid=q3r430tvq2fbqtknceetrrpnn3

Rich bubblegum fruit, sweet cinnamon and plum. Some nice cherry cola fruit on the palate but overall seemed lacking in acid balance and a bit flabby.

(25% vendange entier; 60% new oak): Bright dark red. Deep but reticent nose hints at licorice and underbrush. Then surprisingly layered and creamy in the mouth with cherry and redcurrant fruit complemented by dark Belgian chocolate and licorice. No easy sweetness here but plenty rich. Finishes with suave fine-grained tannins and some chocolatey oak that will take time to harmonize with the wine. This fruit and the Clos de Beze were picked on the first two days of October.

Full red with ruby highlights. Slightly medicinal aromas of blackberry black cherry and mocha. At once fine-grained and penetrating with fruit-driven intensity. A bit simple on the front end then builds impressively toward the back finishing with a note of cherry and an impression of salty extract. Four of these seven barrels were new. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Dark and smoky sporting black cherry plum and spice flavors. The tannins are dense and burly leaving grip and spicy notes on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2025.- B.S. Wine Spectator.

Medium red. Complex aromas of redcurrant raspberry leather truffle and smoky earth. Rich chewy and deep with captivating sweetness to the red fruit and spice flavors. Finishes with a kick of acidity a saline nuance and noteworthy rising length. With extended time in the recorked bottle this Volnay gained markedly in dusty spice character. 91+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.

<p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This Pinot Noir is blended with an Italian grape, Nebbiolo. The result is a raspberry nose with mild tannins.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
