($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.

About This Producer


Eighty-six hectares of Grand and Premier Cru vineyards. One hundred thirty total hectares in the Cote d'Or. Eighty crus produced each vintage. Two hundred seventy-five years of history. Bouchard Pere et Fils is truly an institution in Beaune. The Maison was founded by father and son Michel and Joseph Bouchard in 1731, and the family wine merchant business has grown steadily ever since, taking any opportunity to add to its vineyard holdings along the way. Not to be completely overshadowed by its wines, Bouchard conducts business in the very center of Beaune in the old Chateau de Beaune, whose storied past rivals that of the Maison. In 1995, the Champagne family of Joseph Henriot took control of Bouchard, resulting in improvements in quality, not to mention the addition of more top level vineyard sites. Reds of particular interest include the flagship Beaune Greve Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus and the Chambertin-Clos de Beze. As for whites, the Meursault Genevrieres, Meursault Perrieres, Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet are all great interpreters of their particular sites, exhibiting the many nuances of grand and premier cru Chardonnay.
