Bouchard Pere & Fils

flagBurgundy / France

Tasted at the La Romanee vertical at Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair. The 2001 La Romanee Grand Cru, which is a Bouchard Pere 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. Jul 2015, www.robertparker.com
