Lot #203. Bouchard Père & Fils (Domaine) Corton-Charlemagne 2012

Description: Consists of 6 Magnums, 1.5L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 95 JG.
"Maison Bouchard’s parcel in Corton-Charlemagne have a plain easterly exposure which helps them retain raciness and minerality, and these qualities are very much amplified in this gorgeous young wine. This is a powerfully-built young vintage of Corton Charlie, as the low yields here have concentrated every element to a certain degree, but this is not an over-sized and too intense version of the vintage, but rather a perfectly poised and balanced wine of stunning depth. The great bouquet is a blend of pear, apple, crème patissière, a bottomless base of chalky minerality, spring flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully complex, with a rock solid core, crisp acids, laser-like focus and exceptional length and grip on the pure and vibrant finish. Another absolutely stunning young wine!" John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Nov/Dec 2013, Issue #48
Notes: Lightly scuffed capsules, 2 very lightly scuffed labels.
