  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($91) Medium red with a palish rim. Tight nose hints at dark fruits and musky earth. Round, dense and spherical but youthfully unforthcoming, with a slight earthy rusticity to the flavors of cherry and musky brown spices. Finishes with dusty tannins. In an awkward stage today and in need of patience.

    Fine and fragrant. Sweet oak spice in balance with pure, fresh fruit and a light mineral tone. Quite delicate but persistent and harmonious. (JH)

    The Bouchard 2007 Le Corton evinces cedar, wood smoke, game, and red fruits in the nose. A sense of constriction, chalk suffusion, faintly gum-numbing tannins, and a for the vintage surprisingly tart, brash sour cherry and rhubarb fruit character combine to render this somewhat severe, although its penetration and persistence are formidable. I would want to revisit it in 2-3 years to make a call on longer-term age-worthiness, but I'm skeptical for now. What a striking contrast this makes to the extraordinary 2008. Could I have caught this one at an unusually difficult stage, I wonder?

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.
