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
Four and a half glasses
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
External Reviews for Bouchard Père et Fils Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
Bright medium red. Medicinal red fruits and a hint of menthol on the nose. Sweet dense and sappy on the palate with urgent soil-driven flavors of raspberry pepper spices and minerals. Finishes long and perfumed with black fruit and crushed stone flavors that easily outlast the wine s tannins. Impressive potential. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Quite rich - in fact much richer than some Chevaliers. Big and bold and less racy than some. But lots of fun! Dense and deep flavoured. Some hint of smokiness as well as the richness. Very long. Creamy finish. A Chevalier that is trying to be a Montr... Jancis Robinson. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2010 Bouchard Pere et Fils Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru 750ml
At present ...there are notes of reduction yet the nose seems fresh and ripe anyway. The cool restrained and mineral-driven flavors possess good volume before terminating in a linear and persistent finish... Burghound.
Full red with ruby highlights. Slightly medicinal aromas of blackberry black cherry and mocha. At once fine-grained and penetrating with fruit-driven intensity. A bit simple on the front end then builds impressively toward the back finishing with a note of cherry and an impression of salty extract. Four of these seven barrels were new. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
(25% vendange entier; 60% new oak): Bright dark red. Deep but reticent nose hints at licorice and underbrush. Then surprisingly layered and creamy in the mouth with cherry and redcurrant fruit complemented by dark Belgian chocolate and licorice. No easy sweetness here but plenty rich. Finishes with suave fine-grained tannins and some chocolatey oak that will take time to harmonize with the wine. This fruit and the Clos de Beze were picked on the first two days of October. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
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.
