Bouchard Pere et Fils Corton-Charlemagne 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"A pungent and well-layered nose features notes of green apple, grapefruit, lemon peel and wet stone. There is outstanding power and excellent punch to the beautifully well-delineated big-bodied flavors that exude a fine minerality on the saline-infused, explosive and hugely long finish. This is a very impressive effort that is blessed with notably good underlying material and this will require resting for the better part of a decade in a cool cellar...93" BH 07/13 "Good pale yellow. Pure, scented nose offers aromas of lime, pineapple, acacia flower and powdered stone. Sappy, spicy and dense with extract, boasting lovely definition and a pronounced mineral character. Finishes saline, savory and dry, with a tactile crushed stone quality. The percentage of new oak here will only be about 10% by the time of the bottling (it's aging mostly in one- and three-year-old barrels). ...92-94" IWC 09/12

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 ".
