Nice flavor; lacks a bit of oomph.
Ripe red cherry with background savory spice. More subtle than I'd expect for 2009 1er right now, with moderate density for the level and vintage. Drinking well now.
Evaluating Bouchard Père & Fils: 2012s and earlier vintages (Ripple Restaurant in Washington D.C.): While some tasters remarked that the ripeness made the wine seem like it "could be from anywhere" I reveled in drinking it. The terroir(s) - as it is made from multiple premier cru vineyards - will show through with time as there is enough concentration and body for at least mid-term aging.
2012 Bouchard dinner with Panos – Mostly Bouchards (Ripple Restaurant in DC): Very ripe black fruits, blackberry, black cherry, a hint of baked fruits, dark spices and earth. Very good concentration, noticeable but not obtrusive tannins and medium finish. If you don’t care for the 09 ripeness, stay away.
