Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: Issue 26

(from 2 similarly sized parcels - 1 at the top and the other at the bottom of the slope. ) Note that I was shown two versions of this wine, one from Domaine fruit and another that was purchased. Prost indicated that there might be two wines released or they might be blended. The wine reviewed here is from Domaine fruit and was significantly better than the purchased example. A ripe, reserved and cool nose of flat out gorgeous complexity leads to beautifully delineated, powerful and robust flavors that somehow manage to remain understated on the hugely long and spicy finish. This has the 'wow' factor in spades and is a strong candidate for the Clos de Vougeot of the vintage (along with the Leroy and Dr. George Mugneret versions).

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 131

Deep ruby-red. Knockout nose offers black cherry, violet, truffle, minerals and dark chocolate. Suave on entry, then quite backward in the middle following the expressive nose, and dominated by its firm tannic spine. The very unevolved flavors of black cherry, minerals and spices need more elevage But this should be strong.

CS Bags of sweet clove-spiked black fruit, very rich aromas. Warm and inviting but not casual. Sweetly aromatic red fruit in the middle then a wonderfully delicate and subtle length. Very very fine melting tannnis. Intense flavours with a remarkable lightness of touch. (JH)

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: 171

Notes of tallow, charred meat, and blackberry rise from the glass of Bouchard's 2005 Clos Vougeot crafted from purchased fruit. Broad and expansive, rich, substantial and creamy in texture on the palate, this displays impressively concentrated black fruit, meat, and savory, soy-like essences and a solid finish. It ought to repay at least 8-10 years in the cellar, although one must add that a track record cannot yet have been established for the quality of wine that Bouchard Pere & Fils has begun crafting of late.
