2009 Bouchard - Beaune du Château 1er Cru (750)
2009 Bouchard - Beaune du Château 1er Cru (750ml)
Varietal: Pinot Noir | Location: France - Burgundy - Beaune
Red Wine 

Deep ruby-garnet in color, the 2009 Bouchard Beaune du Château opens with discreet aromas of raspberry, violets, and cinnamon/spice. Quick swirls in the glass unlock notes of ripe cherry fruit, well-integrated with subtle hints of oak. On the palate, the fruit is silky, pure, and wonderfully refined, but with a sneaky intensity of flavor that keeps growing as the wine airs. The tannins are well-integrated, supple, and harmonious, but with considerable grip as well. Immensely enjoyable now for its pure, graceful Pinot Noir fruit, this wine offers at least 7 to 10 years of aging potential.

We've been following Belle-Vue for years and this is another great one. It has a dark purple color and an exotic and spicy nose with a hint of vanilla. The tannins are dense, but sweet and round. It has excellent concentration of fruit. (tasted twice)

Varietal: Bordeaux Blend | Location: France - Bordeaux - Haut-Médoc
Red Wine 
WA 89-92

We tasted the Cambon La Pelouse during our marathon Joanne tasting, but it stood out as a delightful Haut-Medoc. Dark red and black cherry fruit with a dollop of vanilla oak on the nose gave way to a concentrated and intense palate of black cherry, plum and spice. The tightly-wound finish hints that this is one to cellar for a year or two once released.

Varietal: Bordeaux Blend | Location: France - Bordeaux - Haut-Médoc
Red Wine 
WS 90


This property is a real hidden "gem", just a stone's throw away from the St. Julien appellation and stars such as Lagrange and Gruaud Larose. We're happy to keep the secret because it means more wine for us! Owner Francois Nony, whom we got to visit with during our recent trip to Bordeaux, delivers a great 2009. A blackcurrant and cassis-like nose leads to a classic Medoc earthy finish. This wine is well-balanced with a freshness of fruit that is a hallmark of this vintage. It should age well for 5-10 more years. A real bargain!

Our friend, owner Francois Nony, just keeps raising the bar at Caronne! A perennial winner, his 2010 has a nice bit of blackcurrant in the nose, with well-integrated, ripe tannins. There are attractive Medoc earth flavors that carry through into a long and elegant finish. (tasted twice including once at the chateau)

We tried this wine when we visited Bill Blatch at Vintex, the negociant firm owned by the people who own Chateau de la Riviere. We were thrilled with the wine. It has a nice earthy style with bright red fruit flavors, some spice and coffee-like aromas, and firm structure with a long fruity finish.
