2017 Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru

SKU #1434365 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Bouchard have some of the biggest holdings of Corton-Charlemagne, at 3.9ha, all of them east-facing and high on the slope. This is perfumed and intense, with citrus rind and tangerine notes, chalky freshness and old-vine concentration. The oak is assertive but well integrated. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Super chalky with restrained notes of stones and minerals, as well as orange and clementine aromas and lightly spiced bread dough, in attractive mode. The palate has a smoothly layered and very approachable feel with a lot of plush, rich and ripe fruit, delivered in a channel of chalky freshness. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Concentrated, with a solid structure keeping this sleek and long. Lemon, apple, vanilla and pastry spice notes ply the dense texture, buoyed by vivid acidity. Balanced, with a long aftertaste echoing the fruit and spice flavors, retaining a chalky feel. *Collectibles* (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A cool and admirably pure nose displays notes of green apple, floral, citrus and a hint of wood toast. There is excellent volume, power and punch to the well-detailed and overtly stony broad-shouldered flavors that coat the palate on the impressively long finish that also reflects a bitter lemon nuance. While this is a classically styled CC, it remains relatively refined and should drink reasonably well after only 5 years or so of bottle age. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru surpasses its showing from barrel, revealing an attractive bouquet of ripe orchard fruit, citrus oil, spring flowers and pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, elegantly glossy and precise, with a fleshy core of fruit that's tempered by brisk acids, concluding with a delicately chalky finish. While this is a little shut down after its recent bottling, this is a charming, expressive Corton-Charlemagne in the making. (WK) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has an impressive bouquet that actually outshines the Montrachet, featuring yellow fruit, minerals and hints of white flower. The palate is well balanced with good body and rounded texture, displaying notes of orange peel and quince, and perhaps just missing a little delineation toward the finish. Fine. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

94 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Clear bright primrose, very striking nose, a touch of attractive straight-off-the-stones reduction, delicious tense fruit on the palate, very dynamic, a little bit of Mirabelle behind, maybe a hint of nectarine, so ripe but stops well short of anything blowsy. Leaves an excellent aftertaste, very successful." (01/2019) 92-95 points Stephen Tanzer for Vinous: "(from fruit picked on September 12 and 13): Aromas of lime, white flowers, spices and hazelnut. Powerful, thick, rich and deep; wonderfully silky and broad but with terrific spicy acidity giving it a light touch. This is extract-rich for a yield of nearly 45 hectoliters per hectare. Finishes tactile, dry and long, with an impression of tannic spine and repeating nutty nuances." (09/2018)
