Bouchard Pere & Fils Beaune-Du-Chateau Rouge Premier Cru 2020 750ml

RP-92, JS-91

S$89.00

Generous aromas of fully ripe blackberries and black cherries with a pronounced licorice note. Impressive concentration for such a large-production wine, the well-judged tannins giving this weight and warmth. Keeps pumping out the fruit and spice at the rich finish, but it’s a bit simple there. A cuvee of wines from 17 plots and a total of 26 hectares of vineyards. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

Yields of merely 20 hectoliters per hectare have delivered a 2020 Beaune 1er Cru du Château of unusual presence and concentration, wafting from the glass with aromas of cherries, sweet berries, rose petals and spices. Medium to full-bodied, ample and velvety, it’s deep and layered, with lively acids and powdery tannins. Readers who have walked Beaune’s hillsides and know the extent of Bouchard’s holdings will realize how much prime terroir goes into this remarkably accessible bottling.

Fine, very perfumed nose. This harmonious, well-constituted wine has the typical softness of Beaune’s Premiers Crus. Good ageing potential.
