Bouchard Père et Fils 2005 Mercurey

April 3, 2011

Another fine wine from the Cote Chalonnaise.

Ruby red of medium intensity. Typically Bourgogne in character displaying good depth and an elegant balance between oak and fruit. The initial masculinity from the animal, roasting elements channels the nose into a refined spcied fruit and floral dimension with reminiscences of pan d’epices and violet. The attack is fresh, the spice and fruit (sour cherry) elements are fully reproposed on the mid-palate. Tannins are grainy and wll integrated. The finish reveals a balanced extraction. Rebuy: yes
