2011 Bouchard Pere & Fils La Cabotte Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru - 750ml
Allen Meadows Burghound - 94 Points
A soft touch of wood still allows the ripe yet very fresh aromas of apple, acacia, anise and citrus blossom to clearly be appreciated. There is noteworthy power, size, weight and muscle to the palate staining and concentrated large-scaled flavors that display an impressive amount of dry extract, all wrapped in a textured and hugely long finish. This is impeccably well-balanced and despite all of the imposing size and weight, there is absolutely no trace of heaviness. This should amply reward medium to even longer-term cellaring.(6/2013)

Pale, bright yellow. A meaty nuance mostly blew off to reveal complex scents of orange peel, dried apricot, almond, caramel and spicecake. Rich and sweet but with excellent acid cut to the dense flavors of citrus fruits, spices and crushed-stone minerality. Really echoes and builds on the back end, saturating the palate without leaving any impression of heaviness. Give this some time in a decanter or, better yet, lay it down for five or six years. An outstanding showing. (9/2013)
