2019 Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Echézeaux Grand Cru (Previously $300)

SKU #1543070 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This domaine bottling comes from 0.39ha in the Combe d'Orveau, one of the coolest sites in the vineyard. The fruit is destemmed but the berries are left as intact as possible, with a substantial percentage of whole clusters, and the wine is aged in just over 50% new casks. The result has a lovely intensity of blackberry fruit and exotic spice, a firm, finely-honed tannic edge, and substantial extract on the palate. This should age well for decades to come.

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Echézeaux Grand Cru is showing especially well, bursting with scents of peonies, blood orange, wild plums, cassis and exotic spices. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and expressive, it's lively and sapid, with a pretty core of fruit, bright acids and powdery tannins. This derives from domaine holdings in En Orveaux, where Weber identifies appreciable diurnal shift as a source of freshness. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2021)

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The well-defined bouquet features dark berry fruit infused with black pepper and clove. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet and candied entry, marmalade and blood orange filtering through the black fruit, and quite a dense finish. It will need time in bottle, but this is a very fine Echézeaux. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This was one of the few wines in the line-up to display any appreciable reduction and in this case it's enough to mask the underlying fruit. The suave, round and highly seductive medium-bodied flavors possess a caressing texture yet there is good underlying power to the acceptably long and complex finale. This seemed slightly out of sorts though I suspect that it will better harmonize once in bottle. Inner quote mark (4/2021)

K&L Notes

92-95 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "First year for the lieu-dit on the label. Made from very old vines on the south facing slope back in the combe, which gets very hot in the afternoon with much cooler nights, the first vineyard to pick in Côte de Nuits. Fresh glowing red purple. The nose has gone missing for the moment, but this is very harmonious on the palate, almost with a darkly toasted aspect to it though, just got there in time. 100% whole bunch." (10/2020)
