DescriptionBouchard Pere & Fils Teurons, Beaune Premier Cru, France 2005
BURGHOUNDA completely different nose is present as the concentrated fruit aromas are quite ripe but somber and reserved with a deft touch of wood lurking in the background, leading to rich, full and borderline robust flavors that are obviously structured yet the very firm tannins are buried beneath an impressive amount of mid-palate sève. A serious Beaune built to last at least two decades.
VINOUSGood ruby-red. Dark cherry, plum liqueur, meat, leather and spices on the nose. Round, lush and rather full in the mouth (this is 14% alcohol), with a soft, very ripe plum flavor and very sweet tannins. This persistent wine is also likely to give early pleasure but has the stuffing to age.
WINE ADVOCATEThe Bouchard 2005 Beaune Teurons offers aromas and sweet-tart flavors of rhubarb and cherry, mingled with brown spices, toasted nuts, and what I take to be site-typical smokiness. With invigorating bright fruit, pungent spice and smokiness and lots of sap and grip, this acquits itself well now and should reward at least 6-8 years of cellaring.
