Bouchard Pere et Fils Chevalier-Montrachet la Cabotte Grand Cru 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Don't miss!...Here the nose displays noticeable sulfur and it's enough to knock down the expressiveness of the otherwise attractively ripe and complex aromas that are compositionally similar to those of the Chevalier. The textured, concentrated and overtly muscular flavors brim with an abundance of dry extract before concluding in an explosively long, mouth coating and almost painfully intense finish. As is often the case, the 2010 La Cabotte displays characteristics of both the Montrachet and the Chevalier and this is one beautiful wine. Note that I do not expect the sulfur to be an issue as the wine ages though if you're tempted to try a bottle young it would be good to decant it first...96" BH 6/12 "Bracing aromas of lemon, pineapple and petrolly minerality; reminded me of a top Alsace riesling. Creamy, vibrant and classic, with great purity of flavor, harmonious palate-stimulating acidity and a captivating mineral coolness. Fully ripe but not overripe. The wonderfully rich, horizontal finish goes on and on. Perfectly balanced for two decades or more of positive evolution in bottle...96+" IWC 09/12

Contrary to many wine growing regions, one of the particularities of Burgundy is the complete lack of the mixing of different grape varieties. There are two main varieties in Burgundy : Pinot Noir for the red wines; Chardonnay for the white wines. The reputation of the Grands Vins fins de Bourgogne is based on two varieties alone : Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. As early as 1866, Dr Jules Guyot i... Read more

There are two main varieties in Burgundy : Pinot Noir for the red wines; Chardonnay for the white wines. The reputation of the Grands Vins fins de Bourgogne is based on two varieties alone : Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. As early as 1866, Dr Jules Guyot in his book on viticulture of the centre north of France, wrote that: " the essence of the fine wines of the Côte d'Or, is the grape variety, the Pineau Noir or Noirien for the red wines; the Pineau Blanc or Chardenet for the white wines ".

The medium-bodied 2000 Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte boasts minerals spices and creamed nuts in its aromatics as well as its flavor profile. It is fresh broad layered and concentrated. This densely packed wine is ample harmonious and displays an admirably long delineated finish. Projected maturity: 2004-2012. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
