2008 Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Meursault 1er Cru "Genevrières"
Allen Meadows - Burghound
*Sweet spot, outstanding!* As it almost always is, here the nose is spicier still and more refined as well with striking complexity adding compelling interest to the floral, citrus and white fruit aromas. The rich, concentrated and classy flavors possess plenty of extract that confers a seductive texture that carries over to the impressively long and harmonious finish. This is unmistakably at another level, at least at this early juncture.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
An attractive, floral bouquet with white peach, lily, dried pineapple and a touch of chalk dust, building nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with good acidity, quite rounded on the entry with Clementine, apricot, peach and mango. Not complex, but very pretty and dainty towards the finish. Very appealing early in its life, but I suspect it will age exceedingly well. Drink 2011-2020. (NM-Wine Journal)

Pale, bright yellow. Deep peach, nutmeg, jasmine and orange blossom on the sexy nose. Rich, supple and sweet, with expansive flavors of stone fruits and spicy oak. Not the last word in complexity, but this big, sexy Meursault is impressively thick and long. Today, this comes across as the California-style wine in this line-up.
As much about texture as flavor, this white offers lemon cake, peach and grapefruit, with hints of clove and nutmeg. This is supple and juicy, with a lingering lemon aftertaste. Best from 2011 through 2022. (BS)
