Winemaker Notes

91-94 Wine Spectator

94 Burghound

"Deep aromas of lemon drop, pineapple and wet stone. Impressively fat and quite dry, even a bit reduced, and less accessible and vibrant today than the Genevrieres. The pineapple fruit is joined by gingery spices and minerals. A very serious, youthfully backward wine with a slightly bitter, dusty finish. This will need time."

This has changed very little since my initial review as it still sports a stunningly pure and elegant nose of gorgeously scented white rose and green apple with the same subtle stone notes that continue onto the brilliantly delineated and almost pungently mineral middle weight flavors that are a study in class, subtlety and grace. There is an intensity and refinement here that allow everything to remain in perfect proportion on the chiseled and crystalline finish. A 'wow' wine. The only change is that given how little that this appears to have progressed, I have added a year to my expected maturity recommendation.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Bouchard 2006 Meursault Perrieres leads with scents of brown spices, toasted nuts and grains, and citrus zest. Ginger snaps, malt, honey, lime, apricot, and walnut inform the rich, creamy palate. Yet, buoyancy, elegance, and clarity are not sacrificed, and the chalky, stony inflections that complicate the long finish fascinatingly and eloquently speak to the mysteriously mineral aura that haunts all of the better wines from this superb cru. I can see no reason to defer the pleasure of this youthfully expressive Perrieres, but it ought to stand up to at least 6-8 years in the cellar. 93-94 points

Cotes de Beaune, Burgundy

Known to offer a magical balance of smoothness and freshness, Meursault's quality is hard to rival. The village lies in the middle of Côte de Beaune, just south of Volnay. Meursault is said to mean “mouse’s jump” because in the past the plots producing Pinot Noir and those producing Chardonnay were no more than a mouse’s jump from one another. Today the village is almost exclusively Chardonnay. A tiny bit of Pinot Noir is produced here with the best coming from Les Santenots on its northern side near Volnay.

While there are no Grands Crus, Meursault’s numerous acclaimed Premiers Crus can compete with any other top-notch white Burgundy. Some to know are Les Perrières, Les Genevrières, Les Charmes, Le Poruzot, Les Bouchères and Les Gouttes d’Or.

Meursault produces outstanding village level wines as well. In general great Premiers Crus and even village level Meursault (Chardonnay) have enticing aromas of lime peel, tropical fruit, crushed rocks, spice and hazelnut. On the palate there is a wonderful balance of brightness and a seductive length with flavors of white peach, pineapple and citrus.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
