Bouchard Pere & Fils

flagBurgundy / France

A 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Cailles – originating in a recent Bouchard land acquisition – displays impressive depth of roast game, with site-typical stony, chalky underpinnings. Tightly-knit and firm in feel, this gets its richness from its carnality, with a nod in the direction of dark berries. The overall impression is somewhat somber and austere, but formidably dense and persistent. I would revisit it in a couple of years, and anticipate its being worth following for several more thereafter. A portion of the fruit for this was not destemmed, an approach taken by Bouchard this year with a number of their grand crus as well. Dec 2009, www.robertparker.com
