Robert Parker – 96
Aromas of white flowers, fresh peach, toasted bread, mandarin oil and pastry cream introduce Bouchard’s 2019 Montrachet Grand Cru, a full-bodied, layered and multidimensional wine that’s deep and concentrated, with racy acids, terrific mid-palate amplitude and a long, saline finish. Broad shouldered and powerful without being at all overbearing, it’s an exemplary rendition of this celebrated site.

Cask sample. Richer than the Chevalier-Montrachet. Very youthful. Lots going on here such as electric lime fruit. It really does have a lot going on on the end. But it’s all awfully unformed. There’s quite a bit of sweetness. Not yet complex but it might get there.
