Medium red. Sexy aromas of musky strawberry, minerals, botanical herbs, smoky oak and menthol. Fat, sweet and pliant, with rich red berry and spicy soil tones joined by a perfumed note of orange on the long, dry aftertaste. Showed lovely flesh and volume initially but shut down dramatically in the glass. Forget about this one for at least several years.

This is a wow wine. Again, the 09's are just such great drinking wines, yet they are fully concentrated and built to age. This corton shows a fresh nose of jammy fruit a floral nuances. The palate is intense and long. Sexy, lush, concentrated, and complex. Ripe Jammy red strawberry, Mineral, herb de provence, violet perfume. Just a fantastically sexy wine. WOW

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.
