Bouchard Père et Fils, Corton-Charlemagne 2013

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.

About This Wine...

The Estate

Since its foundations in 1731, Bouchard Père et Fils has put together an exceptional vineyard holding along the Côte d’Or.

The fact that the firm owns land in some of the most prestigious of Burgundy’s terroirs, makes its objectives an obligation: constant progress towards perfection. A ‘great wine’ demands time and utmost care at every step in its production. This is why the firm calls upon the most suitable equipment (such as the new winery, inaugurated in 2005) and a team that shares the highest standards in terms of craftsmanship and creativity.

  • 2013 Vintage 96 pts James Suckling, June 2015. ‘A fabulous Corton Charlemagne with an impressive density, yet the bright acidity gives this white agility.  Full body, compressed and layered mouthfeel.  Salty and minerally finish.  Drink now or hold.’
