Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France

Grand Cru Bonnes-Mares 2011

January 2013

93-96

Stephen Tanzer IWC

Deep, bright red. Reticent, brooding aromas of black raspberry, chocolate,
roasted herbs, licorice and green pepper. Wonderfully silky and full without any undue weight. Dark berry flavors are accented by crushed stone, pepper, spices and earth. The tangy, savory aftertaste saturates the palate and leaves the taste buds quivering. Here the stem element gives lift to the wine without overwhelming it. Conveys a very powerful impression of terroir.

Grand Cru Chambertin-Clos de Bèze 2011

January 2013

94-96

Stephen Tanzer IWC

Bright, dark red. Captivating nose combines raspberry, red licorice, iron, dried rose, mocha and minerals. all lifted by a high-pitched floral quality. Wonderfully juicy, intense and delineated, showing great energy but also considerable medicinal reserve. Silky and utterly weightless wine with great delicacy and outstanding balance. The rising, highly perfumed, extremely long aftertaste is like a wake-up call for the taste buds. The tannins here are remarkably suave.

Grand Cru Echezeaux 2011

January 2013

91-94

Stephen Tanzer IWC

Good dark red. Aromas and flavors
of black cherry, graphite, tobacco, licorice and pepper. At once sweet and cool, conveying noteworthy energy and a strong impression
of sappy extract. The broad tannins reach the incisors on the long, laid-back finish. This is much better than the two Vosne premier crus in 2011.

Premier Cru Beaune Clos de la Mousse Monopole 2011

January 2013

88-91

Stephen Tanzer IWC

Bright, saturated dark red. Black cherry, wild herbs, licorice, mocha and spicy oak on the nose, along with a suggestion of dried berries. Sweet and full but with noteworthy sappiness to the red berry and cherry flavors. A ripe, sweet fruit bomb with round but firm tannins and lingering spices. These vines are planted along a north-south orientation, which protects them from the hottest midday sun.

Premier Cru Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus 2011

January 2013

90-92

Stephen Tanzer IWC

Good bright, deep red. Black fruits, dark chocolate, menthol and spicy oak on the nose and palate. At once plush and vibrant, with a stony note contributing grip. Quite concentrated for this cuvee, which is usually more delicate. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lovely length.
