A more elegant, airy and slightly cooler nose displays notes of citrus, rose petal, essence of almost and a hint of jasmine tea. There is an equally good sense of refinement to the ultra-pure and more obviously mineral-inflected flavors that culminate in an understated, clean and beautifully focused and balanced finish that is positively Zen-like in its sense of harmony. This and the Porusot beautifully demonstrate the two extremes of the Meursault 1ers as they contrast power and punch with elegance and finesse. Note that while these are qualitative equals they could hardly be more different.
The 2013 Meursault Clos des Bouchères 1er Cru seemed taciturn in the glass at first, but opens up and revels in its mineralité that is very expressive here, one of Jean-Marc's most transparent wines. The palate is medium-bodied, slightly waxy on the entry with fine acidity, intense but one of the most brooding, especially coming after the Poruzots. The finish has a slight tang of seaweed on the aftertaste. It will certainly need three or four years in bottle. 92+ (NM)
Pungent minerality on the nose and palate gives this wine an exhilarating light touch. Supple and refined, this lovely Meursault gained in sweetness as it opened in the glass, showing a honeyed quality to go with its saline minerality. Finishes very smooth and long, with noteworthy lift. (ST)
