One bottle of this wonderful Corton Charlemagne 2006, from the Domaine vineyards of Bouchard pere et fils

Tasting note

" A reserved, indeed even reluctant nose of fresh and stony green fruit and citrus aromas that offer real depth leads to precise, minerally and exceptionally powerful full-bodied flavors that possess huge amounts of dry extract on the hugely long finish. This is still sorting itself out but the quality of the raw materials is impeccable and it possesses impressive potential, which will require at least a decade to realize. One of the finest examples from this appellation in the 2006 vintage."  96 points Allen Meadows, Burghound.com

Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils

One of the very best maisons de negoce today is Bouchard Pere & Fils. Over time, by acquiring various terroirs, Bouchard Père & Fils boasts 130 hectares of vines, of which 12 are classed grand cru and 74 premier cru. Director Philippe Prost is as charming as he is informative. Over the years I have enjoyed tasting horizontals with him at the domain to get a sense of vintages from 2003 up to 2012 most recently, with wines from Montrachet, Corton-Charlemagne, Beaune Greves Vignes de l’Enfant Jésus, Bonnes-Mares, Meursault Perrières: names that “resonate with history” as the Bouchard website proclaims.

 Furthermore a visit to Bouchard’s Château de Beaune – in the heart of Beaune – is essential. A former royal fortress built in the 15th century by King Louis XI, the château includes a vast under ground, naturally cold and humid cellar space.

In 1820 Bernard Bouchard purchased the château. Four of the five original towers of the fortress, as well as parts of the ramparts, still stand today and have been listed as historic monuments since 1937. The cellars run deep underground beneath the property providing ideal natural storage conditions for Bouchard Père & Fils’ large collection of wines.

Old bottles aging peacefully in the cellars

Stocked 10 meters deep, a unique collection of over 2,000 bottles from the 19th century along with more recent bottles age in ideal conditions. Thanks to their natural hygrometry and constant temperatures, the wines enjoy from youth an environment that is perfectly adapted to tranquil ageing. The oldest wine – a Meursault Charmes 1846 – still retains its luster, according to a recent tasting.
