Intense fruit and toasty aromas blended with the mineral notes typical of this appellation. A rich, powerful wine with a strong personality. Very good ageing potential.
Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2012 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, comes from 2.4 hectares of vines located close to the top of the top of the hill, has a crisp, stony bouquet with apple blossom and lime flower, gently unfurling in the glass but needing a little more vigor. The palate is well-balanced with a slightly viscous opening, notes of tangerine and grapefruit, later a welcome twist of bitter lemon lending energy on the finish. Drink now-2028.”,,,  (Feb 2014)

Wine Spectator 92 points - This sneaks up on you, starting with light butter and vanilla notes around the core of peach, grapefruit and spice flavors. Builds in intensity to a long, butterscotch-tinged finish. Creamy texture. Best from 2016 through 2027.—B.S. (Jul 23 2014)

Producer
Founded in 1731 in Beaune by Michel Bouchard, Bouchard Pere & Fils, is one of the oldest wine estates in Burgundy, perpetuating tradition for over 280 years and 9 generations. In 1775, Joseph Bouchard acquired his first vineyards in Volnay in the famous “Les Caillerets” climat and started to develop the family’s vineyard holdings. During the French Revolution, property belonging to the clergy and nobility was confiscated and put up for sale. Joseph’s son, Antoine Philibert Joseph Bouchard, seized the opportunity to extend the family’s vineyard holdings in Beaune including the famous “Beaune Greves Vigne de l’Enfant Jesus.” This desire to build up an exceptional estate in Cote d’Or endured through the generations and acquisitions in the best Villages were added throughout the 19th century and again in the early 20th century.
