Bouchard Aîné & Fils 1999 Clos du Roi Pinot Noir (Beaune)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $30

There's plenty of fat fruit from the over-45-year-old vines that are the source for this premier cru red Burgundy. Round, with a velvety mouthfeel, the wine shows fine depth and dimension, with black-cherry, plum, licorice and toast aromas and flavors. Full and flavorful, it closes with cocoa notes, good length and fine, well-dispersed tannins. Can drink now…

Bouchard Finlayson 2009 Kaaimansgat Chardonnay (Overberg)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $29

Wood-grilled peach aromas mingle with notes of orange blossom and almond skins on the nose. Juicy and well balanced, the rich toasty red apple and orange creamsicle flavors lead into the long wood-spiced close. Drink now.

Bouchard Finlayson 2004 Hannibal Red (Walker Bay)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $39

Brooding dark cherry, deep spices and waves of chocolate coating make this intense and intriguing blend of Italian and French grapes a rare treat. The nose is dark and layered with aromas of wood and dark fruit. The lush tannins and slow finish adds to the overall appeal of the wine. Lots of character here.

Bouchard Père & Fils 2000 Pinot Noir (Bonnes-Mares)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $120

A deliciously concentrated and powerful wine from the domaine of négociant Bouchard Père et Fils. Rich chocolate aromas and intense concentrated black fruits give a strong sense of power and richness. The fruit is rich enough to dominate the tannins. This should age magnificently—10 years at least.

Bouchard Père & Fils 2004 Chardonnay (Chevalier-Montrachet)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $320

The richness of this wine envelops you from the start. It is all about opulence, but it's balanced with layers of ripe fruit and wood. At this stage in its long life, this wine from a fine white wine vintage is still dominated by fruit. The secondary flavors will start to show in 3–4 years time. A powerful wine that does not lose sight of a potential partnership…

Bouchard Père & Fils 2007 Genevrières Premier Cru Chardonnay (Meursault)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $110

Big and bold, this lives up to the reputation of richer Meursault. Yet crispness, a core of tight structure, toast and fresh fruits are always present. The play between the characters is delicious and likely to allow the wine to age over several years.

Bouchard Père & Fils 2006 Marconnets Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Beaune)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $55

Firm and tense, this is a wine on the high wire. The tannins are stretched with acidity, the berry fruits and red cherry flavors vividly standing out against this structure. The aftertaste is fine, poised, mineral. This is developing into an important wine.

Bouchard Père & Fils 2007 Les Cailles Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Nuits-St.-Georges)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $114

An already complete wine, the tannins well integrated into the firm black fruits and acidity. It is foursquare but also has a richness that comes from wood as well as lively final freshness.
