  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96

    ($370) Good full red. Incredible nose melds blueberry, smoked meat, cola, minerals and brown spices. Then silky and seamless on the palate, with outstanding volume and force, and great inner-palate energy to its deep smoky, spicy dark fruits. A wine of compelling sappiness, finishing with great persistence and a tactile whiplash of texture and flavor, with the tannins remarkably fine. This was so plush I drank half the bottle, but it really needs 10 or 12 years in a cold cellar.

    There are only four barrels of Bouchard's 2005 Bonnes Mares. Brightly scented with tart, fresh black raspberry along with resin and sage pungency, this displays the almost savage intensity characteristic of its site, as well as slightly obstreperous tannins and a hint of heat in its brambly, concentrated finish. This high-toned, lean, persistent Pinot may calm down and fill out a bit over the next few months. It certainly seems capable of rewarding a decade or more of cellaring.

  • 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.
