Very ripe, in fact remarkably so for the vintage with fresh red pinot fruit highlighted by earthy, sauvage aromas of underbrush and dark cherry notes followed by big, almost massive, full, very intense, moderately tannic flavors that exhibit excellent length. Solid if not exceptional quality.

Medium red. Big, rich aromas of strawberry, raspberry, underbrush and earth, lifted by a floral element. Large-scaled, broad and sweet, with slightly reduced flavors of blueberry, minerals, chocolate, leather, smoke and earth. Creamy, expansive and long, with very ripe tannins and a finishing note of game.

About This Producer

Eighty-six hectares of Grand and Premier Cru vineyards. One hundred thirty total hectares in the Cote d'Or. Eighty crus produced each vintage. Two hundred seventy-five years of history. Bouchard Pere et Fils is truly an institution in Beaune. The Maison was founded by father and son Michel and Joseph Bouchard in 1731, and the family wine merchant business has grown steadily ever since, taking any opportunity to add to its vineyard holdings along the way. Not to be completely overshadowed by its wines, Bouchard conducts business in the very center of Beaune in the old Chateau de Beaune, whose storied past rivals that of the Maison. In 1995, the Champagne family of Joseph Henriot took control of Bouchard, resulting in improvements in quality, not to mention the addition of more top level vineyard sites. Reds of particular interest include the flagship Beaune Greve Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus and the Chambertin-Clos de Beze. As for whites, the Meursault Genevrieres, Meursault Perrieres, Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet are all great interpreters of their particular sites, exhibiting the many nuances of grand and premier cru Chardonnay.
