2019 Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru
Ripe aromas of plum, black cherry and earth are more floral if less spicy in character. The racy, intense and overtly muscular big-bodied flavors brim with minerality and ample power while the impressively focused and length finish is already beautifully complex. This youthfully austere effort is also very much constructed to age for several decades. In a word, terrific. Drink 2039+.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
Scents of dark berries, rose petals, violets and truffles introduce Bouchard's 2019 Chambertin Grand Cru, a medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated wine that's lively and tightly wound, concluding with a long, lively finish. From a parcel at the top of the slope at the southern extreme of Le Chambertin, the soils are thin and cancerous, and the resulting wine is refined, rather than massive.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
The 2019 Chambertin Grand Cru, which comes from the Domaine, has a very sensual bouquet of pure cranberry, raspberry and wild strawberry aromas, plus delicate rose petal scents mixed with rainswept limestone. The medium-bodied palate offers lithe tannins, a cashmere texture and lovely weight and harmony. Impressive structure combined with finesse on the persistent finish. Superb. Drink 2023 - 2055.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Not so dark in colour as the Bèze, but then these are their own grapes. Near the forest and Latricières so this spot doesn’t get overheated. Sweetly oaked, massive at first sight, yet with a welcome strictness alongside, waves of fruit, not delicate, but with delicacy nonetheless. Amazing persistence really shows the quality of the terroir.
