    ($70) Good medium red. Aromas of red cherry, licorice, smoke and pepper. Densely packed if youthfully unforthcoming, conveying an impression of stuffing without weight. With aeration, this revealed complex, tangy flavors of raspberry, minerals, brown spices, tarragon, licorice and pepper. Boasts good mid-palate energy and lovely lift on the broad, palate-coating finish. An excellent, youthfully understated example of a 2004 that's already elegant and juicy and should gain further in complexity with bottle aging.

    Pale rim. Smudgy, indistinct nose. Very sweet start. Intense flavours. Hard finish. Tough.

    This is the ripest wine to this point and while not jammy, there is an extract of cassis element to the nose plus a hint of framing wood. The flavors are richer and fuller than those of the Taillepieds yet more complex, powerful and they exude a better sense of overall harmony, particularly on the powerful yet refined finish. A seriously good effort for the vintage.

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.
