The best of Bouchard's array of Meursaults in 2017, this hails from two parcels, both in Genevrières Dessus; a total of 2.65ha. Pale, scented and well balanced, it has spicy 15% new wood, good texture and weight, and notes of citrus and beeswax. Drinking Window 2020-2025. (TA)
The honey, white peach, apple and subtle lime blossom aromas and flavors in this elegant white are compelling. Takes a soft-sell approach, with enticing complexity and intensity, set on a light-weight frame. Terrific length. (BS)
Youthfully reticent aromas of crisp Anjou pear, blanched almonds, Meyer lemon and hints of praline introduce the 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières, a medium to full-bodied, deep and tensile wine that's impressively concentrated and nicely defined. This confirms its strong showing from barrel; indeed, the wine has gained in tension since I tasted it in December. While it's a little shut down after its recent bottling, it should drink very well with a bit of bottle age. (WK)
(from a crop level of 45 hectoliters per hectare): Aromas of lemon and lime oil, hazelnut and vanillin oak come across as rich and fully ripe but lively. In a distinctly rich, pliant, almost glyceral style, showing hints of banana and exotic fruits. Perhaps a bit overbearing in the early going, and slightly phenolic on the finish, but this rather reticent wine is evolving slowly. Weber provided an approximation of the final blend, as the Genevrières du Bas vines were picked on September 6 and the estate's higher-altitude parcel on September 11. The two lots were vinified separately and the barrels will not be combined until the first racking in July or August. (ST)
(from an incredible 2.7 ha parcel which makes Bouchard the largest owner). The naturally exotic nose freely offers up notes of spiced tea, matchstick, citrus and white orchard fruit. The generous if not lush medium weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality onto the sappy, refined, focused and lingering finish. This classy effort is more forward than it usually is and should be approachable early on. 92
Some complex and exotic fruit here, from two plots, offering ripe peach aromas, as well as yellow citrus and stones. The palate has a smoothly succulent feel with light honey and white almond-nougat notes, across ripe peaches. Drink in the next six years.
