Bouchard Pere et Fils Chevalier Montrachet France-Bordeaux-Dry White 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Bouchard Père et Fils:
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
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 ".

What the ?!?! Smells like butter at first smell! Crazy! Never smelled that before in a wine. I can't believe it's not butter. This is TOTALLY an artist wine. Crazy vintners! 91/100

    For as simple as this wine is, it's actually fairly interesting. Very dark cherry, leather, herbaceous flavors meet and then turn towards this puckering tartness on the finish where you expect dry tannins. I wish the nose were better; it's way too hot to enjoy, despite being only 12%. It has the sort of imbalance that is charming and almost rustic, but it's definitely not a world class wine.

    A cool, airy, complex and gorgeously elegant nose is more restrained than these Puligny-based grands crus while offering up notes of green apple, pain grillé, stone and very subtle spice notes that merge into rich, full and impressively powerful flav...

    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.
