🏅 Rating 94/100 (4,4⭐)
Beautiful clear bright ruby color. One can sense high breed of top Burgundy right away. Immense depth. Bouquet of forest red berries with some black, forest floor, Indian spices, sandal wood. With some time in the glass develops floral aromas of dark red roses. It feels like it has significant influence of new oak, but it is very well integrated and adds to wine's complexity.
Smooth, but rich and ripe juicy on the palate.
Tannins are also ripe and finely grained giving pleasant mouth feel. All elements are in perfect balance as you want your Grand Cru to be. Looong finish.
Wine opened its drinking window and delivers ultimate pleasure already.
It has this Corton character which gravitates towards Côte de Beaune rather than Côte de Nuits.
This is Domaine Bouchard, not their negociant wine. Own grapes come from 3,95 ha East facing vineyard in historic lieu-dit of Le Corton. — 4 days ago
Pale lemon with stone and citrus fruit aromas. On the palate crisp apple with lemons honey and flinty notes. This medium-body wine was smooth with a wet stone character with overall good balance. The wine finishes with pronounced mineral notes on a medium+ ending. Very Nice! — a day ago
The best nose i have smelled for a pinot in my life. Hard to describe but i had truffles, red fruit, spices, layers upon layers...in the mouth the length was long but had a dip in the middle. Only reason i did not give it a perfect score. A memorable moment — 2 days ago
To go with a simple pasta dish with chicken, mushrooms, cream, parmesan and fresh herbs. An expressive nose with floral hints and some red fruits. Good structure on this fairly ample wine, has some width on the palate, and yet a nice freshness and some fruit, with good elegance to it, the only negative for me is a length that is very average at best. Nothing spectacular but good Savigny. 88-89 pts
Nez expressif et aromatique avec du fruit rouge et un côté floral assez prononcé. La bouche a une belle fraîcheur et un beau fruit pur et une bonne élégance, une certaine structure sur ce vin assez large et dense surtout sur cette appellation . Un beau Savigny avec comme seul reproche une longueur moyenne. 88-89 — 24 days ago
Founded in 1731, Maison Bouchard Père & Fils is one of Burgundy’s oldest wine merchant houses. Had this sitting in my cellar, aging did great. Aromas of crisp stone fruits with floral notes, complex. On the palate apple and citrus flavors, still lively with honey oak and spice. Well balanced, lingering finish ending with mineral tones. Nice! — 21 days ago
A bit disappointing compared to the prior versions. Light, creamy mouth feel, very low lees notes but the mineral precision is not quite there￼￼￼ — 4 days ago
