Wine Enthusiast, December 2019
This tight wine is firm with tannins and still very young. With a backdrop of dense black fruits and acidity, its potential is considerable. With this promise and richness, the wine needs aging. Drink from 2024. ROGER VOSS

Owned by the négociant since 1791, this is an intense, aromatic, engagingly floral Pinot Noir with 15% stems and 30% new wood and good support from tannins and balancing acidity.

It has a wonderful, expressive bouquet of dark cherries, wild strawberry and crushed stone that is easily the best of Bouchard’s Beaune Premier Crus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin and well-judged acidity, perhaps a little oakier than the Les Teurons but with more depth and precision on the finish. Great potential. -- Neal Martin

The palate has delicate and fine tannins with great structural integrity. The length and balance are very convincing. Approachable red fruit at the finish. Drink on release or hold.

On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, velvety and supple, with a nicely concentrated core of sapid fruit, succulent acids and quite a long, harmonious finish. This has come together very nicely since I tasted it from barrel in early December.- WK

The Bouchard family purchased the vineyard in 1791 and its wine remains one of the signatures of the domaine. It’s treated like a grand cru, with 50 percent new oak in top vintages, and in 2017 the oak and fruit are finely married, destined to evolve together for years in bottle. The dark cherry fruit is intensely floral, girded by gingery spice in the tannins, tight, juicy and cool.

Wine Spectator, January 2020
Lush and juicy, this red delivers plum, black cherry, sweet spice and toasty oak flavors on a soft frame. Dense, showing fine balance and length. Drink now through 2030. 150 cases imported. — BS
