Wine Spectactor (WS)

WS93

Well-marked by new oak, along with lemon, white peach and mineral flavors, this gets more integrated as the lively acidity drives the long aftertaste. Give this six months to a year to really sing. Best from 2017 through 2022. 175 cases imported. –BS

"The 2014 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, raised in 15% new oak like the Montrachet, has an attractive white chocolate and almond-scented nose that is pleasing, if missing a little complexity. The palate is well balanced, surprisingly austere on the entry but bestowed with impressive weight. It would benefit from more length and sustain on the finish, though it is balanced and there is a pleasing dab of lemongrass enlivening the finish. Give this a couple of years in barrel--a decent Corton-Charlemagne, even if I do prefer the Meursault Perrières!" --Neal Martin (Jan 2016)

Mild notes of wood and reduction mask the underlying fruit though I can say that it appears to be ripe. Otherwise there is outstanding volume and concentration to the big-bodied and openly muscular flavors that exhibit evident power and punch on the hugely long finale. This is presently very compact and like the Perrières very clearly built to age. I should note that while this is certainly going to need time it is not especially austere and I suspect that it will begin to drink well after only 5-ish years or so if that's your preference.

"(still finishing its secondary fermentation; these east-facing vines at an altitude of 300 meters were not hurt by hail in 2014, according to Weber--or in 2013 for that matter): Aromas of apple, spearmint and dusty herbs. Offers lovely generosity of texture and nicely integrated acidity; a sappy, tactile, soil-driven wine with lovely sweetness and noteworthy elegance. This windy, calcareous site was harvested after a storm on September 18, "but we can afford to wait for good maturity here," said Weber. Bouchard owns 3.6 hectares of old vines in this grand cru, with production just 28 hectoliters per hectare in 2014." -- Stephen Tanzer (Sept 2015)
