    Good deep red. Black cherry, licorice and leather on the nose, with good spicy lift. Spicy, ripe and juicy, with black fruit flavors perked up by pepper. But not vegetal, in the way of numerous Beaune wines from this vintage. Finishes firmly tannic and juicy.

    Here too the nose reflects a deft, indeed almost discreet touch of wood with ripe, elegant and pure dark pinot fruit aromas that beautifully complement the supple but detailed and precise mineral-infused flavors and a long, punchy and intense finish that etches itself into the palate. This is really a lovely effort with impeccable balance that should enable it to age well over a 15 year horizon.

    Quite broad appeal with very clearly defined acidity. Crystal cut. Pure. Far from opulent, though. Hard finish.

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 Père 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 Grèves Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus and the Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As for whites, the Meursault Genevrières, Meursault Perrières, Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet are all great interpreters of their particular sites, exhibiting the many nuances of grand and premier cru Chardonnay.
