Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France

Premier Cru Meursault Genevrières 2020

December 2021

91-93

Vinous

The 2020 Meursault Genevrières 1er Cru has just a touch of reduction on the nose, but there is clearly good fruit concentration here, a light waxy aromas emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with a honeyed texture, lightly spiced, riper than the Charmes but without quite the same delineation.

This white is Riesling-like, with apple, peach, floral, juniper and stone notes. Elegant yet intense, with a long, lingering aftertaste.

Inside Burgundy

Fine lemon and lime colour, with a detailed elegant bouquet and a sense of class all the way through to a slightly richer bouquet. The Bouchard 2020 Genevrières certainly has the detail, with a mix of white fruits, a little apple and also some citrus. A fine Genevrières for the medium term.

Decanter

Bouchard is the owner of two parcels of Genevrières that total 2.65 ha: 1.65 ha on the thin soils of the steeper part of the slope that gives a more mineral result, and another hectare below that in deeper soils. The combination produces a classic Meursault with a ripe apple fruit, notes of butter and hazelnut, and a rich, dense structure but always (even in 2020) a pleasantly saline minerality.

There is almost no golden highlights to the color, indeed it has the appearance of a very young wine. The fresh, cool and restrained nose reflects only moderate maturity on the notes of pear and green apple scents along with the hallmark spiciness of a fine Genevrières.

Here is a full-bodied and rich but not massive Meursault that will please fans of this appellation and regular wine-drinkers alike! Plenty of ripe citrus, particularly orange, with a touch of melted butter and grapefruit peel (the zest and pith) on the ample palate, with a touch of fresh nuts at the long, creamy finish. Just enough acidity to keep all this right on track. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

Premier Cru Meursault Le Porusot Domaine 2020

July 2022

90-93

This is sufficiently reduced to blur the nuances of what appear to be ripe aromas. The dense, powerful and serious larger-scaled flavors possess plenty of sappy dry extract which helps to buffer both the very firm acid spine as well as a touch of tannin on the bitter lemon, austere and built-to-age finale. This is very Poruzots in character and should age accordingly

Full yellow colour, with a light reduction that will soon disappear. Plumper than the Bouchères yet kept in balance by just the right acidity. I enjoy the way this opens out on the second half of the palate, a longer finish than Bouchères. Structure is the order of the day!

Fine lemon and lime colour. The bouquet shows some weight along with nuances. This is firm on the palate, predominantly white fruit, a little citrus touch at the finish, some greengage, yet also with floral notes. Good grip at the relatively long finish.
