2004 Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru

SKU #1071438 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good bright dark red. Initially reticent aromas of cherry, cola, flowers, pepper and sweet oak. Dense and fine-grained but youthfully imploded, with a strong stony minerality keeping the red cherry, bitter chocolate and floral flavors under wraps. Finishes very juicy and very long, with intriguing pepper and floral nuances. The recorked bottle 24 hours later showed brilliantly complex aromas and flavors of black raspberry, bitter chocolate, rose petal and minerals and superb sappy persistence. A great expression of soil and a highlight of the vintage. I promise you that I drained the bottle to the last drop. (ST) Inner quote mark (4/2007)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Rich, generous, almost opulent, this brings together great layers of black fruits and figs, wood smoothness and dense, sensual ripeness allied to acidity. There’s power here, too, but it’s a wine to revel in. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2007)

93-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark The aromatic profile here is completely different with more complexity to the gorgeous mix of red and black pinot fruit, earth, spice, underbrush, smoke, game and iron notes that continue onto the broad, expansive and remarkably intense flavors that culminate in an unusually ripe, mouth coating and long finish. There is admirably good extract here and while the firm tannic spine will require at least a decade to really unwind, the mid-palate concentration is up to the challenge. In sum, this is one striking effort that exudes class. Inner quote mark (4/2006)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark A little bit of oak and flattering on the nose. This one is quite beguiling. (The rest remain aloof.) Really very rich, appetising, sappy fruit with an undertow of ripeness at last. 17.5/20 points. Inner quote mark (1/2006)
