“There is a creaminess to the texture in this white, whose profile borders on broad and muscular. Apple, lemon and stone flavors hold center court, while elements of spice and mineral lurk on the lingering finish. Best from 2024 through 2036.” - Wine Spectator

“This is very open, across a broad palate that shows ripe apples, pineapple and light tropical fruit. Hints of cream. Full-bodied, flavorful and delicious now. Will improve with age, but why wait? Drink or hold.” - James Suckling

“Bouchard Père's Corton-Charlemagne hails from a cool, east-facing site on yellow marls soils in Aloxe-Corton and is one of the last parcels to be picked. Fermented in 20% new wood, it's still a pretty rich Grand Cru white, with breadth, texture and a drizzle of honey, but there's also plenty of balancing acidity, sap and minerality. Appealing stuff.” - Decanter

“The 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is performing very well from bottle, offering up inviting aromas of pear, green pineapple, citrus oil, white flowers, lemon curd and fresh pastry. Medium to full-bodied, deep and nicely concentrated, it's muscular and structured, with racy acids and fine reserves of dry extract. This should age with class.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Winery Tasting Notes
“Brillant straw yellow. Complex aromatics and seductive with hazelnut, fresh walnut and baked apple notes, a touch of citrus and pineapple as well as mineral accents. On the palate, rich hand powerful, this wine often needs a few years to find its’ perfect balance between the sweetness and the acidity. Cinnamon and honey make their appearance after a bit of aging.”
