Thanks to their strong financial arm, Bouchard Pere et Fils is one of the top Maisons in Burgundy that produces sublime wines at very reasonable prices. Their whites are known to be concentrated and dense, and refined with oak that allows a big wine to age for a long time.
We have recently successfully purchased a case of Bouchard Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2006 and think it is a mature, top white which you should not miss. Comparing it with another Grand Cru from Bouchard, the Corton-Charlemagne offers fantastic price and quality ratio which matched the score of Chevalier Montrachet with a fraction of price -
Only 12 bottles available so if you are interested to take a few please let me know immediately -

96pts Allen Meadows "Don't Miss!"
A reserved, indeed even reluctant nose of fresh and stony green fruit and citrus aromas that offer real depth leads to precise, minerally and exceptionally powerful full-bodied flavors that possess huge amounts of dry extract on the hugely long finish. This is still sorting itself out but the quality of the raw materials is impeccable and it possesses impressive potential, which will require at least a decade to realize. One of the finest examples from this appellation in the 2006 vintage.
