    211, The Wine Advocate

    The 2012 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from located on the Mazoyeres side toward Latricieres by the “Route de Grand Cru”. It has a rounded nose that envelops the senses: strawberry and mulberry at first, flint and smoke following after. The palate is very fine on the entry, exuding weightless intensity with immense precision. Apart from Denis Bachelet, this is probably one of the finest examples that I have encountered.

  • Tasting note: The aromatic profile is completely different from that of the Combottes and much more deeply pitched with earthy dark berry fruit, floral and game hints. There is excellent volume and verve to the solidly powerful and muscular flavors that possess good if not imposing size and weight on the complex and beautifully long finish.

  • Tasting note: The strikingly elegant nose offers the most complexity of these 2012s with its well-layered aromas of spice, plum, violet, dark cherry and sandalwood. There is a beguilingly velvety texture to the lightly mineral-driven medium weight flavors that possess plenty of mouth coating dry extract before terminating in a firm and impeccably well-balanced finish. Note that this classy beauty will also require ample patience.

    Producer note: In Denis Bachelet's view, 2005 is a "grand millésime. It's at least as good as 1999 and 2002 and perhaps better. We had a perfect growing season with a consistency and cleanliness of fruit that was even better than both of those two prior vintages. It was quite dry and thus we had very good but not excessive sugars, coming in between 12.5 and 13% with normal yields. I did a cool maceration of between 5 to 8 days depending on the wine and then didn't push the extraction as the skins were thick and gave up their colors and dry extract without much coaxing. The malos were extended, which I believe had as much to do with the cool 2006 growing season as with the amount of malic acid the 2005's possessed to begin with. In fact, between the extra concentration the wines are carrying and the late malos, I may very well delay the mise for another month or two to compensate as the wines seem to be improving month by month in barrel. Overall, I am extremely happy with my '05s and I am convinced that I have never made a better Charmes though obviously time will be the final judge of that." I would agree with Bachelet, not only on his Charmes but in general that his '05s are indeed spectacular. Moreover, the Côte de Nuits-Villages is among the very best of the entire vintage for its class. (A Becky Wasserman/Le Serbet Selection - sbw@leserbet.fr; Berry Bros., Howard Ripley and The Wine Society, UK).
    Tasting note: The recent bottling has caused the nose to become relatively reticent compared to the prior wines though glimpses of the beautifully complex, elegant, refined and pure red pinot and black cherry fruit aromas are visible. The sweet, supple and forward flavors possess notably good length and near perfect balance and the underlying structure on the linear and impressively well delineated finish suggests that this will improve for up to a decade, perhaps slightly longer.

  • Tasting note: In contrast to many of the wines in the range that are quite expressive, this is actually quite reticent if not downright mute with very ripe but elusive aromas of mocha, plum and spicy cassis. The extremely rich, powerful and concentrated big-bodied flavors possess a suave mouth feel as the sap almost completely buffers the unusually generous but quite serious and long finish. This is a classic Bonnes Mares in terms of its underlying architecture and should require between 15 and 20 years to be at its best.

    Medium red. Complex aromas of redcurrant, raspberry, leather, truffle and smoky earth. Rich, chewy and deep, with captivating sweetness to the red fruit and spice flavors. Finishes with a kick of acidity, a saline nuance and noteworthy rising length. With extended time in the recorked bottle, this Volnay gained markedly in dusty spice character.

  • Tasting note: This is both more complex and more aromatically refined as well with a wonderfully layered nose of spiced plum, cassis and violets where additional nuance is added by notes of earth and leather. The attractively, even seductively textured medium weight flavors possess an abundance of dry extract that does a fine job of buffering the otherwise firm tannins and imparts a velvety texture to the dusty, long and serious finish. In a word, terrific.

  • Tasting note: A classic and exceptionally fresh Vosne nose is replete with a wide variety of Asian spice scents that include anise, clove and cinnamon on the notably ripe cassis and black cherry aromas. There is a highly seductive quality to the mouth coating, velvety and suave middle weight flavors that exude a fine dry extract on the silky yet firm finish. This is not quite as complex as the very best of the Bouchard 1ers but this has its own considerable appeal.

  • Tasting note: A brooding but impressively complex nose features notes of red currant, plum, earth and plenty of that Corton sauvage character. The textured, intense and broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration with fully mature structural elements. There is ample buffering sap, which is important as one would reasonably expect, this is a big and sleekly muscled wine with an explosively long, linear and overtly austere finish. The potential here is mostly impressive though note that plenty of patience is requisite.

    Note: from a .24 ha mix of terres rouges and terres blanches but with a bit more of the former
    Producer note: Philippe Prost, Bouchard's winemaker, noted that 2010 was "an up and down growing season with a difficult flowering that resulted in a very small crop with a very high percentage of shot berries, especially in the Côte de Beaune. We began picking on the 20th of September and picked through the 1st of October. The harvest conditions were very cool so the super clean fruit arrived at the cuverie at much more reduced temperatures than is typical. This allowed for longer and entirely natural cool macerations. The harvest itself though was less stressful than usual for the simple reason that various parcels were ready at different times due to the highly heterogeneous flowering and thus we could methodically organize our harvest regimen. Moreover, thanks to the tiny crop and cool harvest weather we had absolutely no rot pressure so again, we could pick when we chose. By contrast 2009 and 2011 saw everything basically ready at the same time so it was much more difficult to optimize the harvest for each parcel. I did our normal vinification with one exception which is that I opted to use a higher percentage of whole clusters than usual though not for all wines. In fact, particularly in the Côte de Beaune it tended to be a lot or a little but not much in between. We also elected to reduce the percentages of new wood and a rough estimate would be 15 to 30% for the villages wines, 35 to 45% for the minor 1ers, 35 to 55% for the major 1ers and between 55 to 75% for the grands crus. We used one-year old wood for the remainder. As to the wines, they have lots of energy and really speak of their underlying terroirs. They're classic burgundies if you will. As to relative performance, every commune in the Côte de Nuits was excellent though if I had to choose just one, then I would anoint Gevrey as the star. In the Côte de Beaune it wasn't quite so homogenous. The best village in my view was Pommard though Volnay was only just behind. Savigny and Beaune were also both quite good if not exactly at the same level." Proust noted that the reds were bottled in December, 2011 and January, 2012 and most wines were not filtered and none were fined. (Henriot, Inc., www.henriotinc.com, NY, NY; John E. Fells and Sons, www.fells.co.uk, UK).
    Tasting note: Soft wood influence does not materially diminish the lightly spiced and beautifully fresh nose that is composed of red berry fruit, stone hints and earth nuances. The remarkably rich, round and concentrated flavors exude a focused power while coating the palate with impressive reserves of dry extract that also buffer the very firm tannins. This should be excellent in time as there is outstanding intensity yet impeccable balance and length.

  • Tasting note: More subtle though still prominent oak can be found on the much more reserved red currant and dark berry-suffused nose that displays an astonishing array of spice, exotic tea and soft earth aromas. There is better energy as well as more evident minerality on the sleek and sophisticated flavors that deliver superb length and depth on the balanced finale. This is a powerful but classy effort that, very much like the Le Corton, is going to need a long stay in a cool cellar to fully resolve the supporting structure.

  • Tasting note: More discreet wood more easily allows the overtly spicy aromas of poached plum, lavender and tea, The round yet reasonably well-detailed flavors possess a sophisticated mouth feel as well as fine mid-palate density, all wrapped in a youthfully austere, mineral-driven and very firm finish. Unlike the Grèves however, this excellent effort should be reasonably approachable after 5 to 7 years. Burghound

  • The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles has quite a plush and outgoing bouquet with hints of licorice and damson developing in the glass—just a touch of headiness here. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe black cherry and boysenberry jam notes, a little smudged on the finish where I would be seeking more tension. But I suspect this will improve once in bottle.

  • The 2017 Beaune Les Grèves Vigne de L’Enfant Jesus 1er Cru comes from the 3.91-hectare parcel on the mid-slope, currently undergoing piecemeal replanting. It has a wonderful, expressive bouquet of dark cherries, wild strawberry and crushed stone that is easily the best of Bouchard’s Beaune Premier Crus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin and well-judged acidity, perhaps a little oakier than the Les Teurons but with more depth and precision on the finish. Great potential. Drink 2021-2038.

    The 2017 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus exhibits aromas of incense, cassis, blackberry, grilled meat, espresso roast and dark chocolate. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, fleshy and richly structured, with a generous, oak-inflected finish. While this is unlikely to surpass the 2015 and 2016 renditions in ultimate quality, it will offer more immediate gratification.

  • The 2017 Echézeaux Grand Cru, from the lieu-dit of La Combe d’Orveau, just feels a little overdone on the nose, figs and dates suffusing the glossy red fruit. The palate is ripe and powerful. An intense Echézeaux, but lacking the grace and finesse that I have found in some of it peers. Maybe it will ameliorate with bottle age. Drink 2022-2036.

  • Tasting note: Here there is a completely different expression as the earth, leather and iron quality plus floral notes dominate the expressive red fruit nose and rich, superbly intense flavors that both coat and stain the palate with buckets of sappy extract. To be sure, this is no model of finesse though it is by no means rustic either but the complexity, quality of material and harmony combine to create a wine of lovely potential.

  • Tasting note: An expressive and very ripe black berry fruit, spice, mocha, fresh coffee and earthy nose is surrounded by a generous blast of new oak that continues onto the rich, full, concentrated, powerful and sweet flavors that possess superb mid-palate density and huge length. This is an extremely rich wine and because of the influence of the wood, the detail that will very likely come with time in bottle has not yet developed but this is so concentrated yet balanced that it's only a matter of time. This will live for ages and somewhat surprisingly, this is actually approachable now simply because it is so concentrated yet I suspect that when this finally shuts down, it will stay there for the better part of a decade. In a word, fantastic.

In contrast to the Suchots which should drink reasonably well in its youth, this tightly wound effort is going to require at least moderate patience.

As good as the Echézeaux is, and it's first-rate, it's immediately evident that this is just at another level with its sleek, refined and powerful yet restrained medium-bodied flavors that exude evident minerality on the intense, palate coating and massively long finish that is incredibly refined and graceful. In sum, the 2015 La Romanée is a genuine 'wow' wine that is very much built-to-age and is going to need it. Brilliant.

    Tasting note: This still closely resembles my original in-bottle review from 2013 with its exuberantly spicy and superbly fresh nose of red and blue pinot fruit and kirsch scents. The supple, pure and attractively energetic flavors possess very solid mid-palate density yet the mouth feel is really quite lacy while terminating in a harmonious, dusty and hugely persistent finish that displays a hint of citrus. This strongly mineral-driven effort is wonderfully poised, indeed it's Zen-like. In short, this is terrific.

  • Deep, bright red. Subtle, pure nose offers black raspberry, black cherry, mint, menthol and a hint of citrus skin. Wonderfully silky and sweet but the black fruit flavors come off more savory than sugary owing to the wine's strong limestone character. Finishes sappy, uncompromisingly dry and very long, with firm tannins and lovely mineral and floral lift.

  • A gorgeously spicy nose is comprised of liqueur-like dark berry fruit scents that also display plenty of floral influence that includes notes of lavender, violet and, somewhat curiously, honeysuckle. There is outstanding concentration and punch to the seductively textured and marvelously intense big-bodied flavors that are borderline robust as the supporting tannins are dense but refined. I really like the Zen-like sense of harmony to the explosively long finish that really stains the palate. In a word, terrific.
