Surprisingly forward and expressive for young La Romanée with incredibly concentrated, smoky, slightly oaky, spicy black fruit aromas that lead to velvety, dense, tight, understated, broad scaled flavors of stunning length. The depth here is nothing short of mind blowing and this is clearly a notch up from the 2000 if not quite as promising as either the '98 or the '99. Still, with the astonishing level of extract, this could conceivably surprise on the upside. Allen Meadows, Burghound. Apr01,2003



Tasted at the La Romanée vertical at Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair. The 2001 La Romanée Grand Cru, which is a Bouchard Père et Fils bottling and was picked on September 21, was represented by a late release bottle from 2014. It has a rather one-dimensional nose that unfolds in the glass, offering light raspberry and cranberry scents, though never quite achieving grand cru quality. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy ripe tannins, a little saline in the mouth, spicy and forthright with a gentle grip toward the finish. There is piquant red cherry fruit that gives it a tartness that does not quite sit well. Tasted June 2015., 2015

Bouchard Père & Fils is one of Burgundy’s most important houses, and the largest vineyard holder in the Côte d’Or with 130 hectares of vineyards. It’s holdings include 12 hectares of grand cru vineyards, with significant plots in Corton and Corton-Charlemagne, Le Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet. It holds more than 70 hectares of premier cru vineyards, most of which are in the Côte de Beaune, including one of Beaune’s most famous wines: Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus.

The company is owned by the Henriot group, which took over in 1995. Run from their impressive headquarters in Beaune, Bouchard has been making better and better wines in the past twenty years, and can be considered a benchmark producer of both red and white Burgundy.

Bouchard’s holdings in Chevalier-Montrachet are their jewel, and they hold Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte in its entirety. This vineyard sits just above Bouchard’s holding of Le Montrachet, and is one of the finest examples of Chardonnay. The house also has grand cru holdings in Chambertin, Clos de Vougeot, Echézeaux and Bonne Mares in the Côte de Nuits.
