Beaune 1er Cru les Boucherottes 2015 AF Gros
€ 59,29 (incl. Vat)
The 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Les Boucherottes was cropped at just 15 hectoliters per hectare, according to Caroline Parent. Now this has a lovely bouquet with wild strawberry, cranberry and undergrowth notes that are well defined and neatly embrace the 30% new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with quite dense tannin, good weight in the mouth and offers some lovely black pepper and sage infused red fruit on the long finish. This is an excellent wine from the domaine.
Cask sample. 50% new oak. Mid cherry. Quite dark-fruited for a Beaune but lively and lightly spiced by the oak - oak very well in the background. Very firm texture and only just enough fruit to fill out the frame. (JH)
