Bouchard Pere & Fils, Beaune 1er Cru Beaune du Chateau Rouge Domaine - "An excellent introduction to the red wines of Beaune, this has full red-fruit and earthy character with hints of spicy oak and licorice. A crowd-pleasing balance of generosity and moderately dry tannins on the palate with good length. Should age wel." - James Suckling
🏆 JS James Suckling Award - 92 Points
M Chapoutier, Chateauneuf-du-Pape La Bernardine - "The 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape la Bernardine, a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, is red-fruited and vibrant in this vintage, with hints of garrigue lending nuance to the cherries and raspberries. Medium to full-bodied, it's supple on the mid-palate, leading into a crisp, silky finish." - Wine Advocate
🏆 WA Wine Advocate Award - 89 Points
Vincent Girardin, Chorey Les Beaune Les Beaumonts - Red fruits, especially morello cherry and raspberry, with a woody and spicy note with a touch of pepper. The feeling of a delicate and fruity roundness unfolds on a background of slightly stewed red fruits. The tannic structure is fine, silky but well present. This beautiful balance persists for a very long time in the mouth and lets you appreciate the equilibrium and the fine woodiness.
Bouchard Pere & Fils, Beaune 1er Cru Beaune du Chateau Blanc Domaine - Aromas of fresh pear, citrus oil, white flowers and warm pastry preface the 2018 Beaune 1er Cru du Château Blanc, a medium to full-bodied, layered and attractively incisive white that's crisply fleshy and nicely balanced, concluding with a delicately chalky finish. Open and expressive, this will drink well young.
