2019 Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Cailles" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1543058 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A juicy, flavorful red with berry, chocolate, and hazelnut. Some earth, too. Medium-bodied with a tight, layered palate that shows firmness and focus from the polished tannins. Flavorful finish. Holding back. Inner quote mark (6/2021)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Here the expressive nose possesses the classic spiciness of a fine Les Cailles along with notes of poached plum, black cherry and enough earth to remind one that this is still a Nuits. The elegant and pure middle weight flavors display a sophisticated texture yet there is no lack of power and sleek muscularity on the lightly stony and balanced finale. Like several of the wines in the range, this needs to develop more depth that it should occur in time. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2021)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles is very promising, mingling aromas of sweet berries and plums with hints of raw cocoa and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, layered and enveloping, it's bright and fleshy, with an elegant, charming profile that belies its depth and concentration. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2021)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Cailles 1er Cru has more Pinoté and "light" on the nose compared to the Les Porrets, displaying finer delineation and elegance. The palate is well balanced and defined, featuring vivid raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, cranberry laced with sage, and briny notes on the finish. This is my pick of the two Nuits Saint-Georges from Bouchard. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Bouchard owns just over 1ha of this climat, located in the southern section of Nuits. The wine has robust dark berry fruit, with a brambly edge and an appealing, slightly rustic character. On the palate it is plump and approachable, if lacking a bit of structure. (CC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

K&L Notes

92-94 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Deep, but fresh purple. This has a very classic nose, absolutely in harmony and picked at the right time. On the cusp of red and black fruit, balanced, well ripened tannins and very good length. Definitely a success this year." (10/2020)
