Bouchard Aîné & Fils Reviews

Score: 91 | October 1, 2022 | Wine & Spirits

This wine’s bold black fruit has gentleness, with plenty of energy and intensity, though most of what shows for the moment are complexities derived from oak. Gingerbread, sandalwood and musky spice surround the fruit, which, itself, may not begin to speak until it’s at least ten years old.

White grapefruit, lime and white pepper aromas introduce this Chardonnay. The mouthwatering palate is lemony, also offering white peach, green apple and tinges of apricot. Lime-laced acidity keeps things juicy, loaded with zippy acidity. FIONA ADAMS

This negociant firm, owned by the Boisset family since 1993, produced an impressively fresh Meursault Porusot in 2015. Some of our tasters objected to the oak influence, which one found sawdusty, while others found it appropriately nutty, with baking-spice flavors to accent the apple and fennel flavors. The texture is round and sapid, making this a wine for roast veal.

This has the smooth feel of stones polished in a tumbler, the wine savory and meaty, the texture opulent. A spark of acidity brings out notes of orange pith to balance a hint of nutty, nougat-like sweetness, all of it held with firm elasticity to the structure.

Red-berry fruits dominate this already delicious wine. Allied with the acidity and the toasty wood aging, it is balanced while, of course, still young. It has potential, rich with tannins and with fine fruits. The wine is structured, needing time.

The wine is full of acidity — crisp and tight. With firm tannins to back up the red-currant fruit, it is going to take time to open up. Then it will become a rich serious wine.
