2016 Bouchard Père et Fils Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru "La Cabotte" 6-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1541205 95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This too is so firmly reduced that the nose is unreadable. There is by contrast good freshness and a lovely sense of verve to the dense and serious imposingly-scaled flavors that possess ample muscle and minerality on the powerful and driving finish that delivers outstanding length. In any given vintage La Cabotte can be more Montrachet or more Chevalier in character but in 2016, I would describe it more akin to Montrachet. I would further note that while this should age effortlessly, there is so much mid-palate fat that it could be enjoyed after only 5-ish years.*Don't Miss!* Inner quote mark (1/2018)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Knockout pure-but-reticent nose melds deep yellow fruits, oak char, baking spices and minerals (this always needs a lot more time than the Chevalier-Montrachet here, notes Frédéric Weber). Wonderfully silky and rich but light on its feet; a serious mouthful of lemon zest, crushed stone and spices with outstanding focus and supporting salty minerality. Really shines today for its inner-mouth tension and explosive palate-dusting finish. Bouchard's Montrachet production was off by more than 50% in 2016 (to around 23 hectoliters per hectare), but the Cabotte was less affected by frost, producing three barrels, vs. four in 2017. This wonderfully plush, fine-grained, concentrated wine is built for a long and eventful evolution in bottle.95+ (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2018)
