 tasting note





















Bouchard Père et Fils, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1995
Medium, soft ruby colour. Nose a little reticent, but perfumed strawberry fruit emerges, with vanilla and a cedary note. Quite firm and unyielding on the palate, though pure with hidden reserves of ripe, strawberry and blackcurrant fruit. There's also some oak and just a glimpse of a creamier edge. Fine balance with the purity continuing into the long, spicy finish. This is a lean style, but there is so much concentration and fruit buried in there that I'd be surprised if this wasn't drinking really well in around 2 to 3 years time. (11/98)
