LeDomduVin: Bouchard Père et fils dégustation

Bouchard Père et fils dégustation 

A few days ago, a "degustation" (*) of old and rare ladies (as I like to call them), in mythical vintages, took place somewhere (I can't tell you where). 

I was just passing by and therefore was not a part of it. Yet, the Head Sommelier of the restaurant showed me the bottles and even offered me to taste one of them, which I felt very privileged. 

I must admit that the people who tasted them, that night, were very lucky, as it is not every day one can taste such old and rare bottles, needless to say, have access to them in such great conditions. All from the estate I was told. 

The degustation included the following wines: 

Bouchard Pere & Fils Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Combettes 1966

Hospices de Beaune Meursault-Charmes Premier Cru Cuvée Albert Grivault 1964 
by Maison Bouchard Pere et Fils

Domaines du Chateau de Beaune Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru 1983 
by Maison Bouchard Pere et Fils

Domaines du Chateau de Beaune Beaune Clos de la Mousse Premier Cru Monopole 1959

This is the one I tried and it was absolutely stunning! In a mindblowing condition, perfect! Soft, silky, and beautifully balanced, displaying delicate red cherry fruit flavors, superb freshness for a wine of that age, and a seamless finish. I was very impressed with how good it was. Looooved it. 

Bouchard Pere et Fils Volnay Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot Premier cru 1995

Bouchard Pere et Fils Beaune-Greves Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus 1964 (magnum)

What a great lineup! 

I can only imagine how good the other wines must have been. And, whether they were as good (or not), just being part of this unique experience must have been a truly exceptional moment. 

I must say, I envy them. Yet, I'm glad I had the chance to taste one of them. Thank you. 

Cheers! Santé!


(*) (I prefer this french word to the simple word "tasting", as it sounds better and more sophisticated 😃👍🍷)
