2015 Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Cailles"

SKU #1380127 95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is pure, offering delicate cherry, raspberry, rose, graphite and stony flavors, aligned with a firm, well-integrated matrix of tannins. Persists on the lingering aftertaste. Elegant and sophisticated. (BS) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Ripe and juicy with berries, this structured wine also offers great fruitiness and opulence. The acidity and the tannins promise the future while the ripe fruits show the fine vintage well. This is a wine to age, best enjoyed from 2024. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark There is ample wood framing the softly earthy and very ripe aromas that are composed primarily of cassis and spiced tea. The suave, round and sappy medium weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality on the concentrated and serious yet refined finish that displays a hint of youthful austerity. This too is quite impressive and should reward extended cellaring yet be approachable after 6 to 8 years. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2017)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Borders Les St-Georges to the north. Offers a very ripe dark-cherry nose with ample sweet earth and spice aromas. Really fresh with an average of 50% whole bunches. The definition of tannins on the palate is impressive. Finishes with crispness and verve. Try from 2020. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Cailles 1er Cru has an attractive, open-knit, almost warm bouquet of lovely raspberry and crushed strawberry scents and hints of marmalade and fig. The palate is very well balanced, with firm, saturated tannins that lend both fatness and velvety texture. Fortunately, the acidity is such that it retains admirable balance and there is enormous depth toward the finish. Great potential. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Sleek, juicy cherry nose with stylish floral notes. A silky attack leads into a concentrated palate showing purity and elegance. This is surprisingly forward, with no Nuits austerity or grip. There are tannins lurking, though, and the balance seems excellent. Quite long on the finish, but could do with a bit more persistence. (SB) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles is one of the highlights of Bouchard's red portfolio in 2015, offering up a complex nose of orange rind, squab, red and black fruit, strawberry and rose petal. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with creditable depth and length, structured around fine-grained but firm tannins that assert themselves on the classically Nuits finish. While more might have been possible in the 2015 vintage, this is an excellent wine. (WK) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

K&L Notes

92+ points Stephen Tanzer in Vinous: "Bright medium red. Slightly brooding, mineral-driven aromas of dark raspberry, crushed rock and rose petal; with aeration, this premier cru showed good floral lift and a piquant note of blood orange. Dense, spicy and modestly sweet, displaying the fullness of the vintage along with elements of sour cherry and saline minerality. Finishes firm and savory, with tongue-dusting tannins and lovely subtle rising length. Delivers impressive density without excess weight." (1/2018)
