    June 15, 2016 - enjoyable nose & palate, approachable, ready to drink, can age further more, fruity, floral, short pleasant finish

    January 14, 2015 - Evaluating Bouchard Père & Fils: 2012s and earlier vintages (Ripple Restaurant in Washington D.C.): Another negociant based wine, that is Bouchard makes it from grapes it purchases from growers. Not as successful as the Gevrey Chambertin, as it has more of a rustic feel. Nevertheless, as Ben Giliberti of Calvert Woodley commented over dinner: "This would go well with a steak on a grill" and I agree! It just lacks the refinement of the Gevrey Chambertin, and is to me the weakest of all the 2012s we tried this evening.

    January 14, 2015 - 2012 Bouchard dinner with Panos – Mostly Bouchards (Ripple Restaurant in DC): Crunch red fruits, cranberry and strawberry, flowers and Corton dust. Medium concentration, crunch red fruit driven palate impression, bright acidity, noticeable tannins and slightly bitter finish. Quite enjoyable.

    October 11, 2014 - Lengthy finish. Gripping tannins. Needs some more time in the bottle.

    August 13, 2014 - Floral on the nose. Good structure. Tannins are fairly soft. I'm going to wait a couple of years to open the next bottle.
