($180) Highly complex but reticent nose combines citrus peel, wet stone and spices. Silky on entry, then wonderfully dense and ripe but classically dry in the middle, with outstanding sap and energy to the lemon, stone and violet flavors. As generous and expressive as this is now in the middle palate, it also has terrific spine for aging. Bouchard's Corton-Charlemagne has consistently been one of my favorite white Burgundies in recent vintages, and it's a relative value compared to grand crus from the Montrachet neighborhood.

Freshly perfumed – creamy citrus and delicate spice. Powerful and savoury on the palate, already quite complex with a very fluid fresh length. Just a hint of softness but still pretty taught. (JH)

That the team at Bouchard presents their 2006 Corton-Charlemagne for tasting last of all certainly reflects confidence in their holdings (high up in a southeast-facing original "Le Corton") as well as in their affinity for the site. Grapefruit, lime, yellow plum, and chalk in the nose lead to a pungent, tart concentration of citrus and pit fruit essences and an implacable stoniness that leave the palate stained, yet all the while invigorated. In fact, this leaves one's tongue positively aquiver. It needs some years to really show what is at present only incipient complexity, but exhibits a balanced youthful intensity that promise well over a decade of positive evolution. Certainly an investment in a bottle or two of this represents a bargain when compared with its grand cru siblings from further south.

Wonderful nose. Nice roundness on palate, fresh. Great long finish.
