White Burgundy Bouchard Pere 2018 Montrachet

2 Bottle 150cl £930
White Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2012 Bienvenues Batard Montrachet

3 Bottle 300cl £695
  • Tasting note: This is also quite elegant with its equally spicy nose of honeysuckle, yellow and white orchard fruit and citrus elements. There is a lovely vibrancy to the concentrated and relatively large-scaled flavors that possess good power on the markedly dry and somewhat compact edgy finish. As with the Combettes my predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt that the finish will flesh out and the dryness will dissipate with time.

    Producer note: Winemaker Frédéric Weber is always a wealth of detail regarding the intricacies of the growing season and regarding the 2018 vintage, he explained that "the winter was relatively mild with double the normal rainfall between October 2017 and April 2018. April and May were dry and warm, so the vegetation exploded as the soil provided ample supplies of water. We were further blessed with a precocious and very fast flowering where there was almost no shatter. This in turn engendered an enormous fruit set so it was clear early on that absent a destructive bout of hail that we were definitely going to have good volumes and particularly so in white. As such we chose to drop quite a bit of chardonnay bunches in July and August. Despite the abundant early season rainfall, the summer was quite dry and sufficiently so that young vines or those planted in more meager soils suffered from hydric stress. We could see this in the fact that the véraison took a long time to finish. Thankfully, an August 23rd storm dropped enough water to allow the vines to bring the fruit to full maturity. After doing a long series of ripeness sampling, we finally chose to begin picking on the 28th of August with the pinot and then attacked the chardonnay on the 3rd of September. The fruit was impeccably clean, and yields were very good in both colors with between 38 to 40 hl/ha in pinot and between 48 to 60 hl/ha in chardonnay. Potential alcohols were equally good, ranging as they did between 13.5 to 14% in pinot and slightly higher in chardonnay at between 13.5 to 14.5%. For the reds we used between 15 and 50% whole clusters and vinified softly as the skins were thick with a high degree of extractability plus there were more seeds than usual so we did everything we could to avoid damaging them. Another big factor is that we had no fermentation stoppages but that doesn't mean that we weren't worried about the possibility of them. With respect to the reds, some people want to compare them to the 2003s but we don't really agree. To be sure, 2018 was consistently very warm and dry but it wasn't as extreme as 2003 plus yields were much higher. Speaking for our wines, we would suggest that they're like a mix of 2005 and 2009, which is to say that we believe that 2018 is potentially a great vintage." Weber added that Bouchard purchased very few wines for the négociant side of the operation, partially because the domaine vines produced such good volumes but also because the quality of the wines on offer was too often suspect. (Henriot, Inc., www.henriotinc.com, NY, USA; The Rare & Fine Wine Company Limited, www.therareandfinewinecompany.com, and John E. Fells and Sons, www.fells.co.uk, both UK).
    Tasting note: Whiffs of matchstick, lemongrass and mineral reduction are present on the cool and pure essence of pear aromas that are also trimmed in just enough wood to mention. The middle weight flavors flash a lovely minerality while the mouthfeel is very classy on the chiseled, sappy, dry and youthfully austere finale where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This will need a few years to develop better overall depth though it's not so backwards that it could not be enjoyed young if that's your preference.

White Burgundy Bouchard Pere 2019 Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres

[Due late 2021]

6 Case 6 75cl £420
  • 2019 Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Meursault Les Perrières 1er Cru

    The 2019 Meursault Les Perrières 1er Cru is quite intense on the nose, although I found more terroir expression on the Genevrières by comparison. The well-balanced palate has a saline entry, a fine bead of acidity and an intense, quite citric finish; good salinity on the aftertaste. This Les Perrières has plenty of energy and should offer 15–20 years’ drinking.

White Burgundy Bouchard Pere 2018 Chevalier Montrachet La Cabotte

3 Bottle 150cl £880
  • The 2018 Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte Grand Cru comes from a small band of 0.21 hectares above Montrachet. Curiously, it does not convey the same complexity as the regular Chevalier-Montrachet on the nose. The palate is quite elegant, with a little more viscosity on the entry, a fine bead of acidity and a slightly honeyed texture on the finish. It is precise and poised, but again, does not equal the complexity of the Chevalier-Montrachet, which is advantaged by coming from all four terraces instead of a single plot.

    Note: Bouchard has been separately vinifying this parcel, which at one time was part of Montrachet, since 1992 though the first commercial release was not until 1997; Bouchard jokingly refers to this parcel as their "Montrachet du haute pente", or upper slope Montrachet
    Producer note: Winemaker Frédéric Weber spent plenty of time discussing the nuances of the 2014 vintage and growing season, noting that "the winter was very mild, in fact we had the warmest one since 1900. Not surprisingly the vegetative cycle began very early and a cool north wind made sure that the vines suffered no disease pressure. The early June flowering passed without incidence and there was a relatively abundant fruit set. Throughout the month of June we were dreaming of the possibility of making another 1999 and then the 28th arrived with the widespread hailstorm and all such thoughts were instantly destroyed along with a great deal of the potential crop. In 2013 we lost about one-third of the potential crop whereas in 2014 it was more in the range of 40 to 45%. In fact it was the smallest crop here at Bouchard since 2003. In early July the direction of the wind changed from the north to the southwest and lousy weather followed the winds except for a few days that were so hot that some parcels suffered sun burned fruit. Happily the second half of August and virtually all of September changed once again for the better and conditions were not only near-perfect but again there was virtually no disease pressure because the small amount of rot that developed in August was dried by the prevailing north wind. It also helped that there weren't many berries on each bunch so the fruit was well-aerated. We chose to begin picking the pinot on the 11th of September but waited until the 14th to attack the chardonnay. The chardonnay was impeccably clean and potential alcohols were in the 12 to 13.5% range with good acid levels. In contrast to the relatively quick malos for the pinot, those for the chardonnay were extended. As is our usual practice we did zero bâtonnage and we used no new wood whatsoever. As to the style of the 2014 whites, they remind me a great deal of the 2008s which in my book is an excellent compliment." Weber noted that the villages wines were bottled in September 2015 followed by the 1ers in November and the grands crus in December. (Henriot, Inc., www.henriotinc.com, NY, NY; John E. Fells and Sons, www.fells.co.uk, UK).
    Tasting note: This presently has the same nose as the Corton-Charlemagne as it's both reduced and mildly woody though I would not expect this to persist beyond the first few years as the reduction is not heavy. There is once again outstanding volume and concentration as well as impressive size, weight and richness to the highly seductive big-bodied flavors that possess a plenitude of dry extract that both coats the palate and buffers the firm acid spine shaping the gorgeously long and well-balanced finale. In 2014 this more resembles Montrachet than Chevalier and I would make the same observation here that I made with the Corton-Charlemagne and Chevalier that while this should amply reward extended cellaring it is not so backward that it shouldn't drink well after 6 to 8 years.

White Burgundy Bouchard Pere 2016 Montrachet

1 Case 6 75cl £2,800
  • There is just half of the quantity of the 2016 Montrachet Grand Cru this year (although that said, that's probably a multiple of what fellow Montrachet growers inherited). The bouquet has that marine-like tincture like the La Cabotte - oyster shell and sea cave scents underlying the citrus fruit. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, sappy in the mouth, a brooding intensity toward the finish. You can just feel the presence of this Montrachet, the opening chapter of a great wine. This will take several years to reach its apogee but it will be worth the wait.

    Score: 94 - 96

    Neal Martin, robertparker.com Maturity: 2020-205029 December 2017

    (almost finished with its malo): Bright yellow. Higher-pitched and more musky than La Cabotte, offering scents of ripe stone fruits and smoky oak. Fat, sweet, ripe and full, with stone fruit and spice flavors a bit suppressed at present. Finishes thick, spicy, dusty and powerful. Like the two wines from Chevalier-Montrachet, this gives an impression of high alcohol; all three are in the high 13s. Very strong wine but the most monolithic of this trio, with its slightly aggressive character somewhat leavened by obvious energy.
