Bouchard Père & Fils : Clos Vougeot Grand cru 2011
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Clos de Vougeot from Bouchard Père has an open and generous bouquet with sous-bois-tinged red fruit that are vivacious and offer enticing pinoté. The palate is well balanced with fine acidity and delineation, hints of strawberry cheesecake and raspberry leading to a relatively spicy finish that has good length. Coming back a second time, this does dispense some of its initial vigor and weight, so I would suggest drinking this Clos de Vougeot over the next 4-5 years and not longer.
