2019 Bouchard Puligny 1er Cru Montrachet Chalumaux

93 Points John Caro
In stock
An elegant Puligny-Montrachet from an elevated site in this famous area. The Chalumaux Premier Cru is located on austere soils to the North of the zone, on a site with characteristics that are comparable to well-regarded sites in neighbouring Meursault Crus like Perrieres. A lesser known label from Bouchard, the Chalumaux is well worth adding to the collection.

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.
