Love this Cuvée. First time trying 2017, which Bouchard clearly nailed. Elected to not decant, and just go with a Burgundy glass. It’s highly aromatic for Champagne, revealing layers of rich orchard fruits, perfumed citrus oils and a touch of gun smoke. The palate is creamy and satiny, so textural and so giving. Such a singular, vinous Champagne and the perfect example of Bouchard’s style. Love these wines, and really impressed with how well 2017 is drinking already. — 16 days ago
No formal notes, dining with friends in a very good Chinese Restaurant on the Gold Coast. It might be a Premier Cru but Beaune is not Vosne Romanee. Lots of ripe cherry on the nose and palate. Quite sweet on the palate. Possibly drunk a little young and lacking in complexity but I don’t believe this will reach any great heights. — 9 days ago
38 years and the nose is still intact. A wonderful, crisp, citrus lingers from the glass. A fantastic finish. — 16 days ago
Such a nice acid line thru this — a day ago
Complex nose of forest floor, wild strawberry, subtle spices. Well integrated tannins will age even more beautifully — 7 days ago
One of the best champs I’ve ever had. Enjoyed at AOC.
Côte de Bachelin [La Parcelle] - 100% Pinot Noir from the 1.5 hectare lieu-dit of Côte de Bachelin. Spends a full three years on the lees, and thus, is always bottled as a vintage cuvée. 150 cases produced annually. — 11 days ago
