Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 92

Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru from Bouchard Père & Fils was one of the few that surpassed my expectations out of barrel. It has abundant red berry fruit on the nose – wild strawberry and blackcurrant, a touch of fennel coming through with aeration. There is oak here, but it is nicely enmeshed. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins. There is plenty of sweetness here, candied orange peel infusing the bright, tart cherry fruit, but maintaining fine precision on the finish. [Neal Martin, 01/10/2015]

Anticipated maturity: 2016-2032

Vinous – 92-94

(from estate vines planted in 1978 and 1956; a blend of the top and bottom of the cru): Bright, dark red. Pungent stony minerality and black cherry on the rather cool nose. Then dense, sappy and sweet, showing a very fine-grained texture and terrific inner-mouth lift. This pliant, deep wine really saturates the palate on the long aftertaste, with the tannins thoroughly buffered by fruit. Just four barrels produced, vs. a permitted ten.
