Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils la Cabotte Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/>This La Cabotte is the very special sub-section of Chevalier,<br/>continuing the rows of Bouchard?s Le Montrachet. It is<br/>fairly restrained compared to the regular Chevalier, but<br/>with unbelievable intensity on the palate and a line of<br/>steel that runs through the middle. The fruit flavours are<br/>yet to emerge in detail but it is precise and chiselled, yet<br/>in glorious volume.
