2006 Bouchard Pere & Fils Montrachet Burgundy - 97 pts!
Bouchard Père et Fils is a sizable and historic Burgundy wine estate, based in Beaune. The largest vineyard owner in the Côte d'Or, it produces more than 100 wines mostly made from Pinot Noir or Chardonnay, in a range that also includes appellations in the Maconnais, Côte Chalonnaise and Beaujolais regions.

Bouchard Père et Fils is one of the oldest wine estates in Burgundy, founded in 1731. In 1995 it was sold to Joseph Henriot, and became part of Groupe La Vigie along with major brands like Champagne Henriot and Chablis' William Fèvre. Bouchard Père et Fils should not be confused with Bouchard Aîné et Fils, which is owned by Boisset.

Product Details

Rating 96 RP - The Bouchard 2006 Montrachet offers scents of ripe peach and apricot; saline, savory pan drippings; patisserie-like marzipan and buttered, fruit paste-filled pastry; and exotic, sweet, lily-like floral essences. Deep, savory, meaty and mysteriously mineral undertones compliment the implosively-concentrated fruit essence of this palpably unctuous, powerful yet persistently invigorating wine. It combines head-turning beauty with eyebrow-lifting intrigue and should remain so for at least two decades.

Wine Spectator 96 WS - This is rich and creamy, with plenty of style and sophistication. Ripe fruit flavors of apricot, passion fruit, citrus blossom and mineral course through the refined texture. Unfolds to a long aftertaste of stone fruit and stone. 

Wine Spectator

Burghound 97 BH - While it's almost hard to believe, here the highly perfumed nose is more complex still with a superb range of floral, orchard fruit, spice, toast, roasted nut and acacia blossom aromas that complement to perfection the big, rich, concentrated and seriously intense big-bodied flavors brimming with dry extract that confers an almost chewy texture on the magnificently long finish. This is a Montrachet with both style and power yet it remains elegant, pure and is still very much of a baby. Great but note that patience is required.
