Like several of the wines in the range, this lacks a bit of aromatic freshness on the red currant, sauvage and wood-suffused nose. The rich, supple and round middle weight flavors are surprisingly forward compared to how this wine is typically structured, all wrapped in an acceptably lingering finish. While perfectly OK, I found this to be somewhat disappointing relative to its usual quality as it’s often one of Bouchard’s best wines. (89-92)/2027+
