Bouchard Père et Fils Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Rouge 2009
Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/>The bouquet of this splendid Chambertin Clos de Beze from Bouchard suggests new wood,<br/>magical perfume, deep rich plums and ultra opulence,<br/>yet on the palate it is seamless with energy right through<br/>to the back. It has an amazing intensity and endless<br/>length. This may be glorious to drink even in its youth<br/>though it should equally live to a ripe old age.

External Reviews for Bouchard Père et Fils Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Rouge
Good deep red. Reticent slightly reduced nose offers licorice wild herbs crushed stone and mint. Tight imploded blackberry and licorice flavors show a light touch. Lovely fruit here but not at all open-knit. Finishes with strong earthy energy and minerality a bit like the Corton. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
This is very ripe indeed even a bit jammy (but not Porto-like) with surprisingly good freshness given the elevated level of ripeness. The seductively-textured flavors possess excellent volume and are extremely rich before culminating in a suave and rather round finish that coats the mouth with firm tannins and plenty of buffering sap. This is riper than I personally prefer but there is no heaviness and solid balance. Burghound.
Good full red. Crushed wild raspberry wild herbs and an exotic suggestion of peach nectar on the nose. Juicy tight and delicate with a strong acidity and lovely floral perfume framing the delicate red fruit flavors. Much more sharply delineated today than the Teurons. A Beaune wine with real energy. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
