Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France

Premier Cru Meursault les Gouttes d'Or 2020

Decanter

The grapes for this wine are from the half-hectare on the border with Porusot. Despite its mid-slope location, this ripens late. The fruit is pressed as whole clusters and fermented in cask, with no more than 15% new. Rather surprisingly for the vintage, there is a lovely green apple and citrus fruit on the nose here and surprising freshness on the palate, although the wine never loses its typical Meursault richness and density.

Inside Burgundy

A similar pale lemon colour, but the nose is a little richer with some yellow plums. Some orange zest as well, a blossoming middle, the finish is as yet less expressive with acidity and fruit still waiting to integrate.
