Bouchard Père et Fils Chardonnay Montrachet Grand Cru 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Chardonnay: Allen Meadows, Burghound 97 "As it should be, this is the best wine here with its compelling nose of acacia blossom, distinctly ripe orchard fruit and gorgeously exotic spice notes that seem to keep changing every few minutes followed by classy, pure and fine flavors that possess both seriously impressive power and wonderful elegance, which continues onto the multi-dimensional, dense, long and palate staining finish. This is very much of a baby and will need plenty of time to really open up so be prepared to wait. Note that there was a trace of reduction on the nose so it would be best to decant this for 30 minutes first if curiosity gets the best of you! Don't miss!"

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.

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 ".

This wine should meet the expectation of most wine enthusiasts familiar with the wines of this Beaune Village: candied almond might be one way to describe the nose (with a certain astringency on the olfactory nerve). Entry is pleasant and smooth with some residual alcohol on the palate - but not too distracting. This is a well made, clean long-finishing wine. Recommended if obtainable.

Sappy aromas of peach, apple and mint. Suave, broad and generous; a fat, full Genevrieres with just enough acidity to frame its sweet fruit. Impressive rising finish shows excellent breadth and persistence. Made from a combination of estate vines pla... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
