Professional Reviews For This Wine


Burghound | Rating: 94-97

(from purchased grapes that come from the same source as the Chapelle) A spicy and ripe nose of stupendous breadth and depth is framed in obvious toast that continues onto the supple, rich, textured and big-boned flavors that are borderline massive yet the focus, detail and harmony of expression all retain admirable clarity and purity. Another one of those 'wow' wines as the intensity of the flavors etch themselves onto the palate and the finale positively explodes. Be aware that this will require plenty of cellar time to come around.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 97

($275) Dark, bright red. Multidimensional, soil-driven nose features wild red berries, smoke, minerals, dried rose, mocha, underbrush and an exhilarating suggestion of white flowers. Like pure silk in the mouth but with pungent mineral lift giving this voluminous, extract-rich wine a nearly weightless impression. As fat, full and solid as this is, the overall impression is of finesse and perfume. Finishes with extraordinary mounting persistence and perfectly buffered, noble tannins.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92-94

The Bouchard 2005 Chambertin Clos de Beze displays a classic aroma of this singularly great site: rose petal, licorice, black cherry, and beef stock. In the mouth it offers intensity along with lift and elegance, its tannins ultra-fine and its finish long, savory, and subtly salty, with deep fruit and carnality. This should cellar superbly for at least 12-15 years.

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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
