Garnet underlined with hints of purple and brown, the 2011 Bouchard Père 1 Fils Clos Vougeot Grand Crus is striking. The bouquet is a complex combination of aromas of black fruit, apple and a hint of licorice. The mouth-feel of this Burgundy is rich and generous, defined by dense, yet refined tannins. This prestigious clos of about 50 hectares is today split between 80 owners, of which one of the owners is the house of Bouchard Père & Fils. This Grand Cru of the Côte d'Or is planted on limestone gravel soils, produces a wine that is very velvety but strong.
