The 2012 Meursault Clos des Boucheres has referenced the 'clos' on the label since the 2011 vintage. Jean-Marc told me that the clos tends to produce a more elegant wine than 'Boucheres' although there is different rootstock, so it probably a combination of those two factors. The 2012 has a slightly more herbaceous bouquet than the Porusot, with touches of nettle and Japanese mirin – introspective, bashful at first but growing in confidence in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with a slight viscosity on the entry, a little more phenolic, with almond, hints of fennel and lemongrass. This is a totally absorbing and cerebral Meursault. (NM)
A gorgeous, elegant and pure nose offers up aromas of white flowers, citrus rind, pear, apple and discreet mineral notes. The ultra-refined and intense middle weight flavors possess excellent delineation before culminating in a relatively dry, linear and focused finish that displays real drive. This strikingly pretty and well-balanced effort is an exercise in harmony and finesse with a delicate mouth feel. While this will probably be approachable after only 5 to 7 years, it should be capable of repaying up to a decade of cellar time.
Ripe apple and honey on the slightly reduced nose. Round, plump and rich, boasting lovely sweetness and volume to its apple and yellow stone fruit flavors. The rich, sweet, persistent finish gives this premier cru plenty of early appeal. (ST)
