Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France
Grand Cru Chevalier-Montrachet
(from a crop level of 31 hectoliters per hectare): Musky aromas of white peach, lemon, lime and piquant tangerine peel, complicated by a suggestion of crushed stone. Densely packed, chewy and sappy, with integrated acidity and solid minerality giving the wine terrific freshness and definition for its vintage. The broad, echoing finish features an element of smoky minerality. Hints of rose and peony throughout give this classically dry wine a light touch.
