Bouchard Pere & Fils Nuits Saint Georges Les Cailles 2016
|France, Burgundy, Morey Saint Denis
|Bouchard Pere & Fils
A straight-ahead, fruity style, featuring cherry, raspberry, spice, underbrush and iron aromas and flavors. Just when you think this is open and approachable, the assertive tannins kick in. Best from 2023 through 2040. 200 cases imported.
The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles has quite a plush and outgoing bouquet with hints of licorice and damson developing in the glass-just a touch of headiness here. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe black cherry and boysenberry jam notes, a little smudged on the finish where I would be seeking more tension. But I suspect this will improve once in bottle.
