Expert Reviews

88-90 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2014

(Bouchard vinifies 10.4 hectares of village vines in Gevrey, and does the vineyard work for just over half of this total; fermented with 30% whole clusters):  Bright red-ruby.  Complex aromas and flavors of medicinal black cherry, mocha, spices and earth.  Sweet but restrained in the mouth, with lovely spicy, herbal lift energizing the mid-palate.  Very good, solid village wine in the making.  There will be 75,000 bottles of this juice.
