Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils, Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 1998

Bouchard Clos Vougeot 1998 #1

A domaine wine of two parcels: one up by the Plante de l’Abbaye, the second downslope, marching with the wall of the clos.

Saturated ruby.  He needs a couple hours to find his voice: he’s ripe and brûlée but compactly-set, inward, horizontal.  What unfolds has propitious dimension and inner-symmetry: mineral-rich blackthorn and plum stone to a suave sandalwood overlay.  Animate and focused and still rising; the last glass was the finest.  Now – 2025+.
