Wine tasting notes

Beaune 1er Cru "Boucherottes" is an aromatic, full bodied wine of considerable structure and complexity tempered by a rich fruit roundness and plump, sumptuous texture. This wine has a beautiful cherry colour and is surprising on the palate with good suppleness. The vineyard borders the famous vineyard of Pommard, which gives it strong fruity characteristics.

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2010)89 pts

The 2010 Beaune 1er Cru Les Boucherottes has a warm, open, generous nose with hints of warm bricks infusing the red berry fruit. The palate is smooth and silky on the entry. It is a fleshier than I expected with a well-defined finish: an approachable Beaune, but one that will age well over the next decade. Drink now-2018.

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2010)89 to 92 pts

Good full red. Sappy aromas of redcurrant, tobacco, mocha and menthol, complicated by sexy earth notes. Suave and fine-grained, with enticing inner-mouth perfume to the redcurrant, cherry and stone flavors. Finishes with fine, sweet tannins, solid structure and excellent length. Expressive, energetic Beaune wine with excellent potential. -- Stephen Tanze

Pale ruby. Pale rim. Very open and a bit lacking in focus. Extraordinarily fruity on the palate. Pretty but difficult to see any use racing over this. Slightly bitter cough-sweet flavour on the finish.

Issue: May 31, 2008. A full, fleshy style, featuring red and black cherry notes, with a vibrant structure. Ripe and ample, it's elements should fold together nicely in three to four years. Nice lingering finish. Best from 2012 through 2022. 200 cases imported. ?BS.
