This is pure, offering delicate cherry, raspberry, rose, graphite and stony flavors, aligned with a firm, well-integrated matrix of tannins. Persists on the lingering aftertaste. Elegant and sophisticated. (BS)
There is ample wood framing the softly earthy and very ripe aromas that are composed primarily of cassis and spiced tea. The suave, round and sappy medium weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality on the concentrated and serious yet refined finish that displays a hint of youthful austerity. This too is quite impressive and should reward extended cellaring yet be approachable after 6 to 8 years.
Ripe and juicy with berries, this structured wine also offers great fruitiness and opulence. The acidity and the tannins promise the future while the ripe fruits show the fine vintage well. This is a wine to age, best enjoyed from 2024.
Borders Les St-Georges to the north. Offers a very ripe dark-cherry nose with ample sweet earth and spice aromas. Really fresh with an average of 50% whole bunches. The definition of tannins on the palate is impressive. Finishes with crispness and verve. Try from 2020.
The 2015 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles comes from Bouchard's single hectare of vines. It has an expressive bouquet with raspberry coulis, wild strawberry and a touch of fig, nicely delineated and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, grippy raspberry and tart red cherry fruit with a touch of spice enlivening the energetic finish that is enhanced, given an edge, by the 40% whole cluster fruit. This should be worth looking out for once in bottle. (NM)
Bright medium red. Slightly brooding, mineral-driven aromas of dark raspberry, crushed rock and rose petal; with aeration, this premier cru showed good floral lift and a piquant note of blood orange. Dense, spicy and modestly sweet, displaying the fullness of the vintage along with elements of sour cherry and saline minerality. Finishes firm and savory, with tongue-dusting tannins and lovely subtle rising length. Delivers impressive density without excess weight. (ST)
