Wine Review: 2005 Bouchard Pere & Fils Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus

Bouchard Pere & Fils Beaune

Since 1731, Bouchard Pere & Fils Beaune has been producing some of the finest examples of Pinot noir and this vintage is no exception. The weather was particularly favorable with little rain, mild temperatures and plenty of sun shining down on the 130 hectares of vineyard in the heart of the Côte d’Or. This little gem showcases bright red fruit and a silky texture that cares through to the spicy, mineral finish. The 2005 Bouchard Pere & Fils Beaune is wonderfully complex, pure and lean with seamless tannin integration. Its drinking nicely now, and will continue to cellar well through the decade. And for food pairings? Bring out the subtleties of Burgundy by pairing it with wild mushrooms, duck, truffles and foie gras—simply spectacular.

Rating: Excellent (93) | $150
