Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Le Corton Grand Cru 2014
Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils
F - 750 ml
Moderate wood and menthol nuances serve as a less than neutral backdrop for the gamy, spicy and very ripe aromas of dark pinot fruit liqueur-like aromas. There is fine volume and outstanding intensity to the big-bodied and powerful flavors that possess flat out superb concentration thanks to the abundance of palate drenching sap that also serves to buffer the firm core of ripe tannins on the hugely long and wonderfully complex finish. While the underlying raw material is certainly present such that this will require 15 to 20 years to arrive at its full apogee, the sap is such that I suspect that it will allow this to be enjoyed after only 7 to 8 years of cellar time. This is one to look for provided that you have at least moderate patience.
