Bouchard Pere & Fils Nuits Saint Georges Les Cailles 2014
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Nuits|
|Brand||Bouchard Pere & Fils|
Healthy dark red. Cool aromas of black cherry and stony minerality. Juicy and penetrating, conveying lovely definition and energy to its currant, mineral and spicy oak flavors. Finishes savory and long, with more refined tannins than Bouchard's bottlings from the Côte de Beaune. Yields on the Côte de Beaune were generally very low in 2014, noted winemaker Frédéric Weber, but the wines from the Côte de Nuits are more generous and more classic.
This has a high-toned edge to the currant, wild cherry and underbrush notes. Firm tannins exacerbate the austerity as this finishes with a dusty, chalky feel. Offers pretty fruit, so be patient. Best from 2019 through 2030.
