Disappointed - trusted Bouchard - but this is definitely lacking the focus and expression of a 1er Cru. Stewed red fruits and damp earth in the background. Sigh ....

Somewhat beefy Pinot. Dark fruits, earthy spice, underbrush, fennel and nice acid. 2015, young I know, could use quite a bit of time to mellow.

I love Burgundy and this is a delicious Beaune. Enjoyed it with smoked haddock gratin where it just came alive and was a beautiful pairing going down rather well with our friends.

A great definition of Burgundy Pinot. Smooth earthy flavors with a hint of mushroom.

Nose of cinnamon, strawberry, cherry. Mouth of bitter, biting tannin, black earth, red berry, dark green bitter herbal. A little heavy and ungraceful.

Afternoon snack, part two: Premier Cru Burgundy. Sure, Bordeaux is cool, but it's Burgundy that haunts my dreams.
