Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France
Grand Cru Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte
Pale, bright yellow. Deeply pitched aromas of yellow peach, grapefruit pith, menthol and iodine. Larger-scaled and broader than the "regular" Chevalier-Montrachet (this plot is actually situated just above Bouchard's parcel in Montrachet--in the 19th century it was considered part of Montrachet--and thus typically displays characteristics of both of these grand crus), with strong, harmonious acidity framing and intensifying the wine's powerful peachy fruit.
