Relatively generous but not dominant wood intrudes upon the very ripe plum cassis and floral aromas lead to extremely rich opulent and palate drenching broad-scaled flavors that possess more dry extract than any wine to this point and possibly in the entire range all wrapped in a balanced long and ultra serious finish. Note the suggested drinking window date and I'm not completely convinced that is necessarily long enough. - Comments: Don't miss!

The Bouchard 2008 Le Corton offers especially saline and spicy accents to its deep red fruit and raw meat sirloin juice-like flavors. Cedar fresh ginger white pepper blond tobacco and vanilla bean all make for a pungent aromatic and palate display and a rich almost velvety texture is reconciled with the sort of nearly electric vivacity and finishing resonance of which this vintage is so singularly and memorably capable. "The middle sector of the hillside gives the silkiness and the old vines backbone" remarks Prost but the young vines and higher elevations he goes on to explain aid the sense of vivacity. This should prove to be worth following for the better part of two decades. What's more it represents amazing value not only for a grand cru but more importantly for a red Burgundy this outstanding. --- David Schildknecht

This is fresh with lovely cherry raspberry and red currant flavors. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated though this needs a few years to come together. Offers nice balance with mineral and spice on the aftertaste... This is fresh with lovely cherry raspberry and red currant flavors. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated though this needs a few years to come together. Offers nice balance with mineral and spice on the aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2026.-BS
