Bouchard Pere & Fils La Cabotte Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru 2005

Allen Meadows 95
more about ratings

This is a bit like the 2006 in the sense of being more Montrachet than Chevalier in character as this is an even bigger wine and blind, it could easily pass for a distinguished Monty. A highly expressive, very ripe and slightly exotic pain grillé-infused nose of superb aromatic elegance and complexity marries into borderline painfully intense, refined, focused and pure big-bodied flavors that are broad-scaled, rich and naturally sweet. Despite all the punch, they remain in absolutely perfect balance as the density of the mid-palate buffers completely the very firm acid spine on the stunningly long finish. This will live for years and is one of the wines of the vintage.
