" 2001 seems to be a very fine vintage for the hill of Corton. This domaine-grown and bottled Corton is the best I have ever tasted from Bouchard, and the Corton is one of their best properties. It is concentrated, long and very focused. The fruit is exceptionally ripe, and deep enough to balance the solid tannin structure. "This has a lot of depth and class. Lovely fruit. Rich and Opulent. Fullish body. Good grip. Long and lovely. Very Fine. Another confirmation that this is a very good vintage for red Corton. 'The best Corton we have made since 1972' says Bernard Hervet." (Clive Coates, The Vine)"
