2019 Bouchard Beaune 1er Cru Teurons

93 Points Parker's Wine Advocate
In stock
A classic Beaune from one of the area's most highly regarded sites. Teurons borders the famous vineyards of Greves and Sur Les Greves, where the southeast-facing slope of free-draining, limestone soils produce small berries and bright flavour with plenty of positive acid and tannin structure. This Teurons has the charm, complexity and age-worthy foundation of some Grand Cru wines...at a fraction of the price. A staff favourite!

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

"Bouchard owns over two hectares of this climat, and the 2019 Beaune 1er Cru Les Teurons was the first parcel of Pinot Noir harvested in this vintage. Mingling aromas of sweet berries and cassis with hints of peonies, raw cocoa and loamy soil, it's medium-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with bright acids and a nicely defined finish. This is another of the portfolio's sleepers."

90-93/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows

"This too is quite ripe (though not roasted) with its nose of plum, cassis and a similar note of mocha. Once again there is a lovely sense of verve to the sappy and rich medium-bodied flavors that possess a slightly finer texture while delivering excellent length on the balanced and somewhat firmer finale. Lovely." Drink 2029+

16.5/20 Jancis Robinson

"Cask sample. A decidedly more orangey ruby than the Clos de la Mousse. Spicy nose. Broad palate with a certain floral note. Not intense but offers quite a lot of fruit and pleasure until a light, dry finish." Drink 2024 - 2036
