Bouchard Père et Fils Beaune du Château 1er Cru

April 21, 2011

Ruby red of medium intensity. The nose is understated at first and seems dominated by a strong toast, oak accent. This gives the wine more of a dark tone rather than the typical unpleasent vanilla nuances. The oak presence becomes less noticebale as the wine stays uncorked in the bottle. The fruit is somewhat hid away but its presence is still well detectable. Undertones of brandy-soaked cherries lie underneath a current of intensely piquant and sweet spices that provides tension and depth. Some violet is there as well. In the palate, the remarkable strenght and depth of its spiciness functions as supporting nerve and bring into balance the obvious toast accents. The grip of the tannins grab the flavour and leads it to a very long finish. Requires good oak tolerance. Rebuy: yes
