Bouchard Pere et Fils Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2017

Outer quote mark This is perhaps the freshest wine in the range and the least marked by the high ripeness of the vintage with its wonderfully pure nose of citrus elements that combine with floral and green apple scents. There is fine intensity to the muscular, dense and powerful broad-shouldered flavors that even manage to display a certain refinement on the sleek, dry and wonderfully long finish. Good stuff and while I wouldn't describe this as classic in style, it still offers much to like. *Sweet Spot* Inner quote mark (6/2017)

90-93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark At the grands crus level, we started with the Corton-Charlemagne, from above Le Corton, a cold, east-facing site with marly soil. Reserved in aroma, its flavors evoked butterscotch and stone, backed by fine acidity. (BS) Inner quote mark (2/2017)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has a composed, citrus peel, granitic bouquet that feels a little "cooler" than others that I have encountered, the altitude and clay soils lending this the reserve to counterbalance the precocity of the growing season. The palate is well balanced with pleasing acidity, tightly-wound with a noticeable marine element that becomes more pronounced towards the finish. It has the weight and intensity you expect from a Corton-Charlemagne and it should repay those who cellar it for 5-7 years. This is a fine effort in such a warm vintage.
