Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 89-92

(from a cooler site featuring a good bit of chalk; not yet racked) Deep ruby-red. Aromas of black cherry and licorice, with a suggestion of cassis reduction. Densely packed but juicy and sharply delineated, with flavors of kirsch stone, bitter chocolate and licorice. Finishes scented and long, with firm tannins that are a bit sweeter than usual for this cuvee But this is a less elegant style than the Caillerets. Unless otherwise noted, all subsequent 2005 samples had not yet been racked in November.

CS Slightly lighter colour than the Caillerets. Cake spice and plums but still fresh. Plums and cherries on the palate, sweet and fresh. Delicious. More autumnal than the Caillerets. (JH)

Tasting note: By contrast to the toast of the Taillepieds, here the wood is more deftly applied as it is seamlessly integrated on both the nose and the palate, particularly on the rich, full, sweet, intense and powerful flavors where the obvious muscle continues onto the less mineral-infused but with even more impressive raw material. This is flat out superb and it's remarkable just how different these two wines are from one another yet the vineyards abut.

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.
