Bouchard Père et Fils Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Rouge 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Bouchard Père et Fils:
Contrary to many wine growing regions, one of the particularities of Burgundy is the complete lack of the mixing of different grape varieties. There are two main varieties in Burgundy : Pinot Noir for the red wines; Chardonnay for the white wines.

Contrary to many wine growing regions, one of the particularities of Burgundy is the complete lack of the mixing of different grape varieties. There are two main varieties in Burgundy : Pinot Noir for the red wines; Chardonnay for the white wines. The reputation of the Grands Vins fins de Bourgogne is based on two varieties alone : Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. As early as 1866, Dr Jules Guyot in his book on viticulture of the centre north of France, wrote that: " the essence of the fine wines of the Côte d'Or, is the grape variety, the Pineau Noir or Noirien for the red wines; the Pineau Blanc or Chardenet for the white wines ".

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 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.

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.
