Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France

Premier Cru Meursault Perrières

September 2016

91+

Vinous

Bright, light yellow. Deeply pitched nose offers fresh apricot, iodiney minerality and a complicating leesy nuance. A broad, fat, mineral bath on the palate, with its ripe, sweet peach flavor nicely countered by firm acidity. Less harmonious and smooth than the Genevrières today, this wine needs time to meld its sweet fruit elements and acidity. But the long, rising finish augurs well for longevity.

Premier Cru Meursault Perrières

September 2016

89-92

Vinous

The rockiest nose so far of these 2015s, with complicating notes of citrus zest, pineapple and lime blossom. Fine-grained, nicely delineated and adamantly dry; a mineral bath in the mouth, with a repeating note of pineapple. Finishes with good tactile, dusty length and slightly elevated alcohol. These Meursault premier crus produced a maximum of 32 hectoliters per hectare in 2015, according to Weber.
