Bouchard Pere & Fils Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru la Cabotte 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2012 Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte Grand Cru has been vinified separately since 1992 and bottled separately since 1997 (apart from a few magnums.) It sees 20% new oak and just 1,500 bottles are produced. Judging them side-by-side, the La Cabotte is similar personality to the “regular” Chevalier, but there is a little more mineralite and delineation. The palate is slightly viscous on the entry and a touch spicier. Good depth in the mouth and very persistent on the finish, this is a very fine, vivacious grand cru...96" WA 02/14

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 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 ".

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... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Here the nose displays noticeable sulfur and its enough to knock down the expressiveness of the otherwise attractively ripe and complex aromas that are compositionally similar to those of the Chevalier.

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.
