Bouchard Pére & Fils Meursault 1er Cru Perriéres 2012

100.00

Chardonnay

Meursault has 17 Premiers Crus, of which the highest regarded are Les Charmes, Les Genevrières and Les Perrières. Made up of 16ha towards the south of Meursault, and named after the juniper bushes that used to dot the hills in the area.

“Outstanding. This is surprisingly expressive at this early stage with its high-toned nose of wet stone, spiced pear and acacia blossom. There is excellent tension to the even stonier and quite finely detailed flavors that possess a seductively textured mid-palate yet the balanced, intense and moderately dry finale is mildly austere even while displaying just enough wood to notice. This should age well though note that in this case I would recommend allowing for at least 5 years of bottle age before trying a bottle.”

About This Wine...

 

“The 2012 Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres comes from three different parcels that are each vinified separately. It has a very pure, aniseed-tinged bouquet that is vibrant and intense. The palate is well-balanced on the entry with orange cordial and that aniseed tincture coming through. The acidity is nicely judged and the finish long and tense. This is a very commendable Perrieres from Bouchard Pere & Fils. Drink 2015-2030.”

93/100 Robert Parker

 

“The core flavors of apple and peach are accented by honey and butterscotch in this open, inviting white. A grapefruit tanginess sneaks up on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2023.”
