"The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes has a focused, Granny Smith apple and wet granite-scented bouquet that maybe does not quite have the vigor of the Champs-Gains at the moment. The palate is crisp on the entry with fine focus, again, commendable salinity here with excellent precision on the persistent finish. Once the aromatics enter their stride, this should be a superb Puligny from Bouchard Père. One to watch out for." Neal Martin
Over time, by acquiring various terroirs with great care and patience, Bouchard Père & Fils has built up a vast domaine in Côte-d’Or. Today the estate boasts 130 hectares of vines, of which 12 are classed Grand Cru and 74 classed as Premier Cru.
Bouchard Père & Fils is an example of unique Burgundy heritage, offering great diversity and a raft of prestigious appellations: Montrachet, Corton-Charlemagne, Beaune Grèves Vignes de l’Enfant Jésus, Bonnes-Mares, Meursault Perrières… names that resonate with history, inspiring respect and encouraging the pursuit of excellence, with 4 monopolies and exclusivities among them. These remarkable parcels are meticulously tended by our teams who are responsible for the maintenance of the estate’s vines.
