2015 Bouchard


Beaune du Chateau-1er Cru Rouge

$44.99

 

“… has an elegant bouquet that demands a little encouragement in the glass, black cherry intermixed with redcurrant, blood orange and even a smudge of marmalade. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin that lend this a masculine personality, a little hardness that should be addressed after racking, though it needs to develop more persistence on the finish. Not bad overall though. Drink 2018-2028.” ~ Allen Meadows, Burghound  Rated 89-92 Points


Deep red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of kirsch, leather, coffee and chocolate; as at so many other addresses, this first sample tasted after Bouchard's range of 2016s struck me as somewhat roasted in its fruit character. Very rich yet sappy, showing the solidity of a very warm year; quite large-scaled (14% alcohol!) for this cuvée, offering highly concentrated flavors of red berries, dark cherry and chocolate. A rather extreme style yet nicely aromatic in the middle palate (Bouchard tries to keep this wine "open" for restaurants, noted Weber). Finishes with soft tannins and very good length. -- Stephen Tanzer 90


The 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Du Château comes from 17 different premier crus that are aged in barrel separately. It is a cuvée that debuted way back in 1907. It has an elegant bouquet that demands a little encouragement in the glass, black cherry intermixed with redcurrant, blood orange and even a smudge of marmalade. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin that lend this a masculine personality, a little hardness that should be addressed after racking, though it needs to develop more persistence on the finish. Not bad overall though. Wine Advocate
