Pale, bright yellow. Expressive nose offers high notes of jasmine, violet and sea salt, along with a leesy Champagne-like complexity. Juicy and pristine on the palate, with penetrating citrus flavors intensified by dusty minerality. A saline element contributes to this pliant, very attractive wine's tactile mouth feel. The slowly mounting finish is firm and complex. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media

The 07 of this was what got me into wine. From a fantastic tasting and tour at Bouchard (the Beaune du Chateau)

2011 vintage. Drinking well with nice citrus notes and good balance. Should benefit with some bottle age.

Beautiful slight straw yellow, golden and super brilliant. Amazing full array of aromas, very clean and mineral. Incredible stoney aromas with toasty almonds. Full coverage in your palate. The performance and the expansion of this wine throughout the palate is priceless. The structure and acidity of this wine is so incredibly focus, surrounded by delicious and phenomenal fruit. Delicious citrusy, also showing delicious hawaiian pineapple, green sour apple. Finish is very, very long and sumptuous, showing the tail of a fabulous acidity, but bountiful flavors of fruit. Kiwi, papaya, bits of butterscotch but ever so slightly, more scents of acacia flower and asara perfume. This wine brings tears to my eyes. 97 pts.
