Description

The Burgundian wine Domaine of Bouchard Pére et Fils can trace its origins back to 1731 though it is no longer family-owned. In 1995 the Champagne house, Joseph Henriot, acquired the company and quality has risen as a consequence. Today Bouchard is led by Stéphane Follin Arbelet while the wines are made by Philippe Prost who has been with the company since 1978. An impressive gravity-flow winery on the Route de Savigny, the Cuvérie St Vincent, was completed in 2005, enabling them, to process all their wines with optimum efficiency.

On the "terroir" of Meursault, some of the vineyards classified as village appellation are situated on a marly ground, identical to the Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (only the topography and altitude are different). These vineyards of great quality deserve to be vinified separately. This is the case for the terroir of Les Clous whose name apparently comes from a deformation of the word "Clos". The Bouchard Père et Fils estate owns 8.64 hectares here, i.e. almost half of the total area.

Review

Polenta, cream, salt and lemon create an enticing and promising nose. The palate has a welcome phenolic firmness and vivid freshness that sits well with the immense concentration. Traces of smoke, of cool limestone and more salt dominate the promising finish. Drink 2025-2040.

Review

The 2019 Meursault Les Clous offers up inviting aromas of crisp orchard fruit, honeycomb, beeswax, and vanilla pod. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural, and incisive, with tangy acids and a tightly wound core, it's a nicely balanced, fine-boned wine in this inherently muscular white Burgundy vintage.

Food pairing
Chardonnay pairs well with a wide range of dishes, including chicken, seafood, and creamy pasta sauces, thanks to its versatility and moderate acidity.

Tasting Profile

Nose
Intense bouquet of fruit and flowers combined with a delicate mineral hint. Rich and subtle wine with good crispiness, which makes it very balanced.
