K&L Notes

Allen Meadows of Burghound adds: "Christophe Bouchard and Philippe Prost, Bouchard's managing director and winemaker respectively, noted that 2009 "is not as easy to pigeon-hole as some people seem to believe. It's of course natural to believe that each vintage has a unique character and as such, it becomes easier to discuss the wines of that vintage as though they all resembled each other due to these shared characteristics. But that's not the necessarily the case with 2009 because there were, in a sense, two flowerings, one early and one late depending on the sector in question. Because of this, you could easily have surmaturité in the precocious sectors and better balanced wines, especially from an acidity standpoint in later maturing sectors. The early terroirs are almost easy with very generous and round characters whereas the late maturing terroirs are much more classic... That said, we really like the quality of the tannins in '09 and believe that there will be some very special wines in time." (06/2011)
