Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France
Grand Cru Bonnes-Mares 2011
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.
