Bouchard Père & Fils : Clos Vougeot Grand cru 2017
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru hails elusively from Bouchard's holdings in the upper part of the Clos, as their lower-lying parcels are being replanted. The wine reveals notes of sweet cassis, wild berries, incense, rich soil and smoky new oak, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and layered palate that reveals good depth and dimension. Vinified with some 50% whole cluster, it's a very promising bottling that will likely fly under the radar.
