2009 Bouchard Père et Fils Volnay 1er Cru "Clos des Chênes"

SKU #1113935 91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A pure and ripe nose of cherry and plum liqueur marries into rich, powerful and mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract which confers a seductive texture on the firm, dusty and beautifully detailed and intense finish that delivers impressive length. This is a classy effort that will require ample cellar time to reach its full maturity yet one that should be approachable in its youth. *Sweet Spot. Outstanding." Inner quote mark (5/2011)

89-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pungent aromas of black cherry, licorice and mint. Juicy and tightly wound, showing a less sophisticated texture than the Caillerets. Medicinal dark cherry is complicated by a creamy suggestion of dark chocolate. Finishes with slightly tough tannins that will need more elevage, not to mention time in bottle. This is evolving slowly. (from a cooler spot featuring chalky white soil; picked five days after the Caillerets) (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2011)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This wine's black raspberry flavor rides along a ridge of acidity—a massive amount of fruit equaled by the potent tannins and that tight acidity. Impressive for its size, this is a pleasure to drink now. Or cellar it to allow some complexity to develop in the flavors. Inner quote mark (10/2011)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Vanilla-sweet cherries and blueberries brightened by a note of cranberries. A little dusty. Sweet fruit carries through on the palate though it is rather light in the middle making the tannins a little dry on the finish. Perhaps it will fill out a bit. (JH) Inner quote mark (1/2011)
