2005 Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Le Corton Grand Cru

SKU #1113651 94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is coming along very nicely and while by no means ready at only 8 years of age, it's sufficiently open and supple that it could be drunk now with pleasure. There is fine complexity to the notably ripe yet still very fresh nose that is displaying only a hint of maturity to the black fruit, earth and sauvage infused aromas. There is very clearly a high degree of phenolic maturity to the firm but not hard structural elements shaping the broad-shouldered and very rich flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration and stunning good length on the mouth coating finish. This is a big and still very firm wine but as I note there is so much extract that it's not nearly as robust and austere as many '05s are today. Inner quote mark (2/2014)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Ineffable aroma of musky strawberry, iron, smoke and dried rose. Silky, full and deep, with a seamless texture and captivating soil tones. As creamy and lush as this is, the dominant impression is one of delicacy and focus. Highly complex, extract-rich flavors of strawberry, minerals, mocha, earth and underbrush. A compelling wine of terroir whose captivating sweetness, fine tannins and superb persistence makes it almost deceptively drinkable today. But this big boy will be around for at least a couple of decades. (ST) Inner quote mark (4/2008)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark, dense and brooding, with a wild, feral side, but also intense flavors of blackberry, cassis, bacon and sandalwood. There's also a mineral streak and a corps of well-knit tannins. This will require time, but the payback will be worth it. (BS) Inner quote mark (5/2008)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Nose is already subtle and complex: perfumed sweet meatiness of (someone else’s) marijuana smoke. Intense fruit on the mid palate. Plenty of oak but well integrated and not dominant. Tannins firm like a bale of silk. Fruit aromas fill the mouth and linger wonderfully. Great Burgundy. 18.5/20 points (JH) Inner quote mark (1/2006)
