"Part of the Bouchard range since 1907, this wine features 17 of the extensive lineup of Beaune premiers crus, grown on a mixture of soil types. Part of FrÃ©dÃ©ric Weber's skill lies in the blending of all these different cuvÃ©es to produce a wine that's textured, floral and sweet, with subtle reduction, some whole-bunch spice and a backdrop of 35% new wood."

"Brisk, bold and juicy, this wine glows with red and purple fruit and floral notes. As it opens over the course of several days, any sense of compression in the coal-black tannins turns toward detail, those tannins layered into a satiny mille-feuille of savory custard and rose petals. This is a selection from Bouchard's parcels in 17 premier cru vineyards, all vinified separately before blending."

"The 2017 Domaine Bouchard Pere & Fils Beaune de Chateau Premier Cru flows bright and lively on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits aromas and flavors of red and black fruit. Enjoy it with a roast leg of lamb."
91 points - Burghound.com "Here too the wood treatment is discreet though not invisible as it surrounds the gently spicy nose of dark berries, plum and lavender. The nicely ripe, round and supple medium-bodied flavors also possess a caressing mouth feel before terminating in a succulent, plum and bitter cherry-inflected finish. This should be approachable young if that's your preference."
