2018 Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Meursault 1er Cru "Genevrières" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1476926 92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Meursault Les Genevrières 1er Cru comes from 2.6 hectares of vine over two parcels. It has a vivacious lemon zest and orange blossom bouquet that shows a subtle influence from the lees. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. Very light nuttiness and smokiness come through on the finish, which feels tense and quite persistent. Good potential. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A dense Meursault with sliced cooked apples and lemons. Some stone and minerals, too. It’s medium to full body. Creamy, almost chewy texture. Some juniper to the apple character. Drink and enjoy. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Hints of matchstick and exotic tea add breadth to the ripe, pure and pretty floral and poached pear-scented nose. The elegant middle weight flavors possess a lilting mouthfeel before concluding in a lightly stony, sleek, focused and persistent finish. This is particularly fine in the context of the vintage and it would be fair to describe this as classy. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (6/2020)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark More demonstrative out of the gates than the 2017 rendition, Bouchard's 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières is showing well from bottle, wafting from the glass with lovely aromas of ripe Anjou pears, citrus oil, fresh pastry and peaches. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and generous, it's charming and expressive, with an ample core of fruit, succulent acids and a nicely defined finish. This will drink well young. (WK) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

K&L Notes

92-94 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "2.6ha in the upper part for the most part, suitable to pick early, old vines. This has just been racked and fined. Pale lemon and lime. Very elegant nose, much more detail than the Charmes with a swirling weighty of gorgeous ripe fruit at the back, a peachier inflection that does not really impact on the lime infused core of the wine. Succulent finish. Very good indeed."
