2009 Bouchard Pere & Fils La Cabotte Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru - 750ml
Allen Meadows Burghound - 95 Points
**Note: Bouchard has been separately vinifying this parcel, which at one time was part of Montrachet, since 1992 though the first commercial release was not until 1997; Prost jokingly refers to this parcel as "Montrachet du haute pente", or upper slope Montrachet** This is slightly riper than the straight Chevalier with a similar nose but with more yellow fruit and spice influence that is followed by rich, serious, broad-shouldered and intensely stony flavors that possess a positively gorgeous sense of underlying tension that adds energy to the massive, explosive, long and palate staining finish. This is a big yet impeccably well-balanced wine that should age for years. (2/2011)

Bright pale yellow. Steely aromas of apple, minerals and warm stone. Voluminous and powerful, with fat flavors of pear, menthol, crushed stone and iodine. Most impressive today on the very long, broad aftertaste, which saturates the palate with lemon and crushed stone. This boasts the sheer size and scale of a Montrachet. (2/2019)
