Founded in 1731, the venerable house of Bouchard Pere & Fils manages 300 acres of vineyards of which 100 acres are classified as 1er Cru with 30 acres classified as Grand Cru. Among all these vineyard holdings there are as many as 70 wines produced. Bernard Bouchard purchased the Château de Beaune in 1820, a former royal fortress constructed in the 15th century by King Louis XI. Bouchard's expansive, deep cellars sit below. Unquestionably one of Burgundy's most historical producers, Bouchard delivered an incredible performance for both 2016 and 2017. In my recent tasting of these vintages, spanning their numerous holdings throughout the Côte and including both whites as well as reds, I was particularly pleased to discover a return to the very high quality I recall from superior vintages of the past.

Bouchard have some of the biggest holdings of Corton-Charlemagne, at 3.9ha, all of them east-facing and high on the slope. This is perfumed and intense, with citrus rind and tangerine notes, chalky freshness and old-vine concentration. The oak is assertive but well integrated. Drinking Window 2020 - 2027.

Concentrated, with a solid structure keeping this sleek and long. Lemon, apple, vanilla and pastry spice notes ply the dense texture, buoyed by vivid acidity. Balanced, with a long aftertaste echoing the fruit and spice flavors, retaining a chalky feel. Best from 2021 through 2029. 175 cases imported.

94 points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator (Jul 2019)

Super chalky with restrained notes of stones and minerals, as well as orange and clementine aromas and lightly spiced bread dough, in attractive mode. The palate has a smoothly layered and very approachable feel with a lot of plush, rich and ripe fruit, delivered in a channel of chalky freshness. Drink or hold.

94 points, James Suckling (Feb 2019)

The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru surpasses its showing from barrel, revealing an attractive bouquet of ripe orchard fruit, citrus oil, spring flowers and pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, elegantly glossy and precise, with a fleshy core of fruit that's tempered by brisk acids, concluding with a delicately chalky finish. While this is a little shut down after its recent bottling, this is a charming, expressive Corton-Charlemagne in the making.
