From the cool east face of the vineyard, this is crisp and tight, less opulent than some Corton-Charlemagne. It makes up in its rich structure, weight and tropical fruit flavors that are sliced by acidity. There is some kerosene along with these exotic fruits, and the wine does need to age. Drink from 2018.

Racy, high-strung nose combines lime, powdered stone, iodine and lavender. Juicy and penetrating yet at the same time silky and thick, communicating outstanding tension to its steely mineral-driven flavors. Wonderfully dense yet light on its feet, this vibrant, gripping wine is a classic example of its vineyard. Very long and a bit youthfully sharp on the finish, in need of at least four or five years of cellaring.

94+ All of the vines owned by the domaine on the hill of Corton face directly east, so this is one of the “cooler” examples of Corton-Charlemagne- which I find to be amongst the very best in these days of global warming... 94+ All of the vines owned by the domaine on the hill of Corton face directly east, so this is one of the “cooler” examples of Corton-Charlemagne- which I find to be amongst the very best in these days of global warming, as they retain greater nervosité in general than examples from vines with more southerly-oriented expositions. The 2011 from Domaine Bouchard is a great wine, soaring from the glass in a complex mélange of apple, a touch of grapefruit, lime oil, chalky, stony soil tones, orange zest, vanillin oak and a topnote of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and quite reserved in personality, with a rock solid core of fruit, brisk acids and stunning length and grip on the perfectly balanced and youthful finish. A classic in the making. (Drink between 2022-2050)

A pungent and well-layered nose features notes of green apple, grapefruit, lemon peel and wet stone. There is outstanding power and excellent punch to the beautifully well-delineated big-bodied flavors that exude a fine minerality on the saline-infused, explosive and hugely long finish. This is a very impressive effort that is blessed with notably good underlying material and this will require resting for the better part of a decade in a cool cellar.

Wine Spectator, June 2014
Offering a mix of lemon, apple and stone flavors, this light-weight white is persistent, lingering with an aftertaste of apple, baking spices and mineral. Almost lacy in texture. Best from 2015 through 2022. 100 cases... Offering a mix of lemon, apple and stone flavors, this light-weight white is persistent, lingering with an aftertaste of apple, baking spices and mineral.
