2019 Bouchard Puligny Montrachet

92 Points John Caro
In stock

A beautiful offering from this special place. This Bouchard label offers a precious taste of the Puligny terroir — in this case, the village and surrounds — without the phenomenal price tag of the Grand Cru vineyards themselves. With an unmistakable balance of richness, floral elegance and mineral depth, this wine has all the concentration and finesse of top white Burgundy, along with the je ne sais quoi that defines this place of Chardonnay legend.

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

92/100 Decanter, Sylvia Wu (2017 vintage)

"This Chardonnay is fermented in stainless steel tanks then aged in partial new oak for 10 months. It has a lovely stone fruit nose, flinty with hints of vanilla. It’s crisp and mineral, yet textured on the palate, with lime and apple fruit decorated by vanilla oak spice which add extra layers and depth."
