Editorial Reviews for Bouchard Père et Fils Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
Shy and a bit spicy on the nose. Slow to emerge smoke, earth and rhubarb notes lend this a less ripe and slight chunky tone. Soft and bright in the mouth, this is rather lacy and pure with red berry fruit. It is a bit on the simple side, but as balanced and fresh as this is, it is attractive. 88 pts
Mean and austere on the nose with some raw oak, mint and light meaty notes. On the palate, this was a touch soft and chewy with some mineral earth notes and herbal nuances. Not much is going on here, though the finish does show some lingering bitter tannins. 85 pts
This opens sappy and sweet with oak to the fore and a background of licorice spice. There is a deep, roast meat, veal reduction edge to the fruit and high tones of cola and floral tones. In the mouth this is bright with a bit of an extracted feel. Simple cherry and cranberry fruit is presented in a modernish package of clumsy tannins and elevated alcohol that yields an inelegant whole though the finish does offer a pleasant medicinal note. 86pts
Sweet and sappy on the nose with very spicy fruit. Still a bit rigid in the mouth with good acids and just a touch of tannin sticking out. Still youthful but not particularly exciting. 87pts
Nice bottle sweetness and limestone minerality here with a gamy, smoky edge to the fading fruit. Very friendly in the mouth with nice freshness and fine balance. Gently sweet and still surprisingly vibrant. A pleasant surprise 88pts

Tastes of honey, butter, very sweet on the pallet. Delicious wine!
09 CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET CLOS DU CHATEAU, 1ER CRU Chateau de la Maltroye , White Wine, 750ml Always a winner, this shows a purity and vibrance unusual for the vintage. A mingling of peaches and fresh citrus, laced with white flowers and flowing minerality. Stylishly serious - and most seriously delicious! https://www.burgundywinecompany.com/index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=57&zenid=q3r430tvq2fbqtknceetrrpnn3

Rich bubblegum fruit, sweet cinnamon and plum. Some nice cherry cola fruit on the palate but overall seemed lacking in acid balance and a bit flabby.
Fresh and juicy. Very nice! - WS Grand Tour 2011

By contrast to the Genevrières, the 2010 Perrières is a knockout with its superbly elegant nose that offers the hallmark mineral reduction and pure floral and white-fleshed fruit aromas that are very much in keeping with the refined flavors that seem...

Medium red. Complex aromas of redcurrant raspberry leather truffle and smoky earth. Rich chewy and deep with captivating sweetness to the red fruit and spice flavors. Finishes with a kick of acidity a saline nuance and noteworthy rising length. With extended time in the recorked bottle this Volnay gained markedly in dusty spice character. 91+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
A more elegant though still very clearly reflective of a classic Savigny nose, speaks of plum, dark berry fruit, stone and plenty of the typical Savigny earth. There is excellent detail and plenty of energy to the precise, intense and solidly complex... Burghound.

Medium red. Wild, musky aromas of smoke, leather and tobacco, with red fruits in the deep background.

A fresh and moderately rustic nose of red and dark berry fruit aromas is replete with various warm earth nuances that also suffuse the supple and almost surprisingly round flavors that are easy to like yet solidly complex. The mildly austere finale is well balanced and persistent and I suspect that this will in all likelihood tighten up significantly as the underlying structure is deceptively agreeable at present. A lovely villages that should drink well after 6 to 8 years of bottle age. Outstanding Top value. Burghound.
(racked in October and just blended in stainless steel tank): Good deep red with ruby tones. Cool aromas of blackberry, blueberry, black tea and licorice. Surprisingly ripe and sweet in the mouth, but with excellent sappy verve to the deep black c... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The lovely 2010 Petits Monts from Domaine Georges Nokllat was raised in fifty percent new oak and was showing quite well at the time of my visit in March wafting from the glass in a complex blend of red and black cherries coffee bean dark soil tones woodsmoke a nice touch of fresh nutmeg and plenty of spicy new oak. On the palate the wine is deep fullish and very pure on the attack with impressive minerality fine mid-palate depth and a very long ripely tannic and tangy finish. Today the wine is a bit marked by its wood on the backend but there is plenty of stuffing to eventually absorb these wood tannins and the wine should be excellent with eight to ten years of bottle age. There are eight barrels of Petits Monts in the cellars in 2010- four of which were new. A very good example of this great terroir. 2019-2040+. 91+. John Gilman.
