Bouchard Père et Fils 2020

January 2022

2020 Meursault 1er Cru, Les Genevrières, Bouchard Père et Fils

£410 per 6 bottle case in bond

92-94 points, William Kelley, robertparker.com

The 2020 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières wafts from the glass with aromas of citrus oil, crisp Anjou pear, hazelnuts, white flowers and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with an ample core of fruit, terrific concentration, bright acids and a long, saline finish.

 

2020 Meursault 1er Cru, Les Perrières, Bouchard Père et Fils

£490 per 6 bottle case in bond

92-94+ points, William Kelley, robertparker.com

The 2020 Meursault 1er Cru Perrières is excellent, exhibiting citrus, crisp orchard fruit, wet stones, freshly baked bread and praline. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with a tangy spine of acidity and a long, saline finish, it's a tensile, penetrating wine that shows considerable promise.

 

2020 Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru, Bouchard Père et Fils

£980 per 6 bottle case in bond

92-94+ points, William Kelley, robertparker.com

Aromas of orange oil, peach, confit citrus, freshly baked bread, beeswax and white flowers preface the 2020 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, a full-bodied, layered and concentrated wine that's deep and muscular, with a rich but tensile profile and a long, chalky finish.

 

2020 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru, Bouchard Père et Fils

£2,100 per 6 bottle case in bond

93-95+ points, William Kelley, robertparker.com

The 2020 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru opens in the glass with notes of citrus oil, musky peach, tangerine, nutmeg and buttered popcorn. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, it's chiseled and penetrating, with a tightly wound core of fruit and a racy spine of acidity. As readers will remember, this bottling hails from the three terraces on the hillside above Bouchard's La Cabotte, their bottling from the latter—which abuts Montrachet itself—being more muscular and powerful, whereas this cuvée is finer-boned and more ethereal.

 

2020 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru, La Cabotte, Bouchard Père et Fils

£1,200 per single magnum in bond

95-97 points, William Kelley, robertparker.com

The 2020 Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte Grand Cru is brilliant, bursting with aromas of orange oil, nutmeg, crisp orchard fruit, white flowers and peach. Full-bodied, satiny and concentrated, it's layered and multidimensional, with striking depth and intensity, concluding with a long, resonant finish. It's a brilliant wine in the making.

 

2020 Montrachet Grand Cru, Bouchard Père et Fils

£4,450 per 6 bottle case in bond

95-97+ points, William Kelley, robertparker.com

The compelling 2020 Montrachet Grand Cru wafts from the glass with aromas of ripe pear and citrus fruit mingled with honeycomb, white flowers, fresh bread and baking spices. Full-bodied, ample and multidimensional, it's richly layered, with a textural attack that segues into an ample, fleshy mid-palate and a long, saline finish. Despite its scale, it remains beautifully precise. This is first rate.

 

2020 Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Grand Cru, Bouchard Père et Fils

£2,400 per 6 bottle case in bond

94-96 points, William Kelley, robertparker.com

Opening in the glass with a rich bouquet of wild berries, cassis, orange rind, rich spices, loamy soil, black truffles and toasty new oak, the 2020 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru is full-bodied, ample and seamless, with a rich, enveloping core of fruit, ripe tannins and lively acids. Concluding with a long, resonant finish, it's a terrific wine in the making.

As always with Burgundy releases, we are unable to sell leading Grand Cru and Premier Cru or wines from particularly sought-after domaines in isolation – we cannot buy them from the domaines that way ourselves and we are aware that demand is sure to outstrip supply. However, instead of running a complex system of allocations, we do aim to confirm requests as soon as we are able to do so or to highlight where we are unable to assist. To request a specific wine, please contact any member of the sales team on +44 (0) 20 3017 2299. You can also reach Simon Larkin MWRichard O'Mahony, and Laura Hollingsworth by email.
