2018 Bouchard St Aubin 1er Cru White Burgundy

93 Points John Caro
In stock
Superb value from a great vintage, this St Aubin comes from one of Burgundy's few remaining sweet-spots on price. A close neighbour to Chardonnay's holy grail, Montrachet, St Aubin has only recently focused on its whites, even though almost of all its vineyards are rated 1er Cru. Thus it offers unusual quality, with the fine ripeness and elegant minerality of a great white Burgundy for an ordinary old vine price.

Its Origins

Today the Burgundian wine domaine of Bouchard Pere et Fils can trace its origins back to 1731, though it is no longer family owned. In 1995 the Champagne house Joseph Henriot acquired the company and quality has risen as a consequence. Bouchard is led by Stéphane Follin Arbelet, while the wines are made by Philippe Prost - who has been with the company since 1978. An impressive gravity-flow winery on the Route de Savigny, the Cuvérie St Vincent, was completed in 2005 and enables them to process all their wines with optimum efficiency. Bouchard’s total holdings comprise 130 hectares, including 12ha of grand crus and 74ha of premier crus, which makes them the largest vineyard owners in the Côte d’Or.
