Bouchard Père & Fils Nuits-Saint- Georges 1999, Burgundy France 

My Rating 90 Points.   

Price $150.


Beautiful color of light brick, with a wide brick/ orange rim.

On the nose, earth, dirt, forest floor, light cherries, barnyard, blueberries, butter scotch, tobacco leaf, red currants, spices, herbs, minerals, graphite and black pepper. Yummy.

Light to medium bodied, with medium acidity, smooth, velvety and elegant.

Dry on the palate with green vegetables, currants, light cherries, strawberries, tobacco, earth, wet leaves, river rocks, coffee, spices, herbs, black tea and black pepper.

Long finish with fine, yet chewy tannins and tart cranberries.

This Pinot Noir is 18 years old and still young, with a firm mouthfeel, although velvety and elegant.

Well balanced and enjoyable by itself. Tangy finish and very earthy. Great wine to pair with food too. I liked the nose better than the palate.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime.
As it opens up, more flowery notes come up with coffee and caramel.

This is not my usual style, but I really enjoyed it. The setting and the company always makes the wine taste better. Thank you for your kind hospitality Mike.

13% alcohol by volume.
