2007 was an outstanding vintage for White Burgundy and this Grand Cru from Bouchard shows the power and potential of these rare and coveted wines. Burghound scored it 96 points as did the Wine Advocate who said "Bouchard’s 2007 Corton-Charlemagne – the last wine they picked – offers another of those occasions for reflecting on a bit of Burgundian craziness: a grand cru wine presented last in a stellar line-up, yet that costs one-half to one-third that of the other grand cru bottlings that preceded it. A striking and intensely pungent aroma of holly berry, fresh ginger, and lime zest leads to a vivacious, silken-textured, chalky, saline, crustacean palate. For all of this wine’s sheer intensity and palpable sense of underlying extract, it shares lift, buoyancy, and overall elegance with its Chevalier-Montrachet counterparts and preserves the energy and primary, juicy refreshment that goes with its vintage. The diversity and persistence of mineral elements here are memorable. It’s the hundredth anniversary of this Bouchard parcel (characterized by all-day luminosity), and a happy birthday indeed! Those lucky enough to acquire some of this should anticipate more than a decade of pleasure, but I would estimate that re-visiting the wine in 2-3 years would be rewarding both sensually and in terms of estimating its further evolution." Extremely Limited!!
Bouchard s 2007 Volnay Caillerets Ancien Cuvee Carnot smells almost savagely pungent and smoky suggesting black tea herbal concentrates dark berries and bitter chocolate all of which persist on a firm palate further accented with cherry pit bitterness and notes of game and underlain by chalk. There is a certain austerity as well as audacity and brightness about this wine that are welcoming in the context of the vintage. I suspect this will be worth following for 7-10 years. -David Schildknecht Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
A serious, tight and brooding nose though aggressive swirling coaxes intensely floral, pure and elegant notes of very ripe black cherry and currant that merge into broad-shouldered and well-muscled flavors that offer excellent volume and concentration, all wrapped in an explosive and moderately austere finish. This is flat out terrific and blessed with huge amounts of dry extract. This should age extremely well but note that it is a wine for the very patient. Burghound.com, Issue Apr 1, 2009, Allen Meadows
Berry Bros & Rudd review: It takes time to dig out all the flavours in this exceptional wine. It is a<br/>blockbuster, with notes of gingerbread and orange blossom adding an exotic<br/>quality to the dense mass of classical fruit. Extraordinarily intense, this<br/>will be terrific if you can wait a few years; be patient and you will be<br/>rewarded.
