2019 Bouchard 1er Cru Savigny Les Lavieres

93 Points Allen Meadows, Burghound
In stock
A darker fruited and yet refined Premier Cru from Savigny-les-Beaune in Burgundy. The Les Lavieres vineyard has stony soils offering great drainage, with the resulting expression typical of the Bouchard bottlings from this site: dark fruit and licorice/mineral aspects with lovely depth and structure. A serious and characterful Premier Cru for a very good 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.

What The Critics Say

91-93/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, William Kelley

"Aromas of peonies, orange rind, wild plums, cherries and wintergreen introduce Bouchard's 2019 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Lavières, a medium to full-bodied, supple and perfumed wine that's lively and enveloping. Routinely one of the most underrated wines in the portfolio, this is always a sumptuous yet lively wine that ages very well."

90-93/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows

"Discreet but not imperceptible wood sets off ripe and distinctly earthy aromas of poached plum, spice and a hint of violet. The generously proportioned but nicely detailed middle weight flavors exude a subtle minerality on the dusty, youthfully austere and firm finale. This is really quite good and a wine that should easily reward a decade plus of cellaring." Drink 2029+
