2017 Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Montrachet Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1401157 98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This has a very flamboyant and complex nose already and there is much to offer with a full array of chardonnay fruit, from citrus to peach and into even more exotic, tropical notes. The palate has a super plush, fleshy and flamboyant feel. There’s concentration of flavor, density of texture and fluidity to the shape and depth in the finish. A classic Montrachet, from a plot on the Puligny side between DRC and Ramonet. Drink across the next 20 years. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Revisited from bottle, the 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru is showing brilliantly, exhibiting a profound bouquet of yellow orchard fruit, fresh peach, white flowers, honeycomb, freshly baked bread and wheat toast. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a textural attack that segues into a layered core that's underpinned by lively acids, concluding with a long and resonant finish. While this is already quite aromatically flamboyant, at least a decade's patience will be rewarded. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark (from a .89 ha parcel on the Puligny side). Like the Chevalier there is some residual SO2 present on the notably floral-suffused nose that primarily consists of various white orchard fruit, tangerine peel and spice. There is even more size, weight and richness to the big-bodied flavors that also possess an abundance of dry extract that imparts a lush mouth feel to the palate coating and highly persistent if notably compact finish that is no longer than that of the La Cabotte but it is slightly more complex. This is going to require extended patience if you wish to see it at its peak. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Bouchard Père's 0.88ha of Montrachet is on the Puligny-Montrachet side of the grand cru and is always served last in the négociant's historic cellars. It's a good way to end, showing a creamy, rich and textured palate of sweet vanilla oak with notes of beeswax and lemon butter, and vivacious supporting acidity. Drinking window 2021-2030.

93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep aromas of mirabelle, spices and iodiney minerality. The fattest and largest of these '17s, both more tactile and sweeter than the Cabotte. Much easier to taste today as well, owing to its ripe yellow fruit flavors. But this also shows more energy than the Cabotte and finishes with a serious tannic spine and the rocky minerality to support a slow evolution in bottle. While showy already, this should be long-lived in the context of its vintage. Bouchard harvested its Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet vineyards between September 6 and 8 in 2017.

K&L Notes

96 points Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "Fine pure primrose colour. A very distinguished nose with a wealth of aristocratic fruit. As ever this needs teasing out while the wines is so young. Seamless intensity, really fills every last corner of the mouth, a tiny touch of heat at the back and a few toasty barrel notes. But this will come together very well. Is there quite enough acidity?" (1/2019) 91-93 points Neal Martin for Vinous: "The 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru comes from 0.88 hectares of vine between Ramonet and Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. It has a stoic, backward, linear bouquet that is far less expressive than either Chevalier-Montrachet. It eventually offers wet limestone and green apple scents. The palate is well balanced, not powerful or even the most complex Montrachet that I have tasted from Bouchard, but it feels very harmonious, with a smooth, lightly spiced finish." (01/2019)
