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

SKU #1476927 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A tight, fruity white with sliced-apple and light banana notes and some stone undertones. Medium-to full-bodied, reserved, dense and beautiful. Flavorful finish. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières is showing very nicely from bottle, offering up a youthful but already expressive bouquet of citrus oil, pear, blanched almonds, pastry cream and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, racy and incisive, it's elegantly textural, with fine concentration, tangy acids, and a precise, mineral finish. While this Perrières is already deceptively charming, if it gains in depth and complexity with bottle age as much as I suspect it will, this score may seem conservative. (WK) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Meursault Les Perrières 1er Cru comes from 1.2 hectares over three different parcels. It has an intense bouquet of crushed rock, pressed yellow flowers, hints of nectarine and yellow plum that develops with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, quite gentle and very pretty for a Perrières, leading to a caressing, pineapple- and passion-fruit-tinged, waxy-textured finish. Very fine. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Whiffs of matchstick, lemongrass and mineral reduction are present on the cool and equally pure essence of pear aromas. The middle weight flavors flash even more minerality while the mouthfeel is also very classy on chiseled, very dry and youthfully austere finale. This will need a few years to further flesh out and develop better overall depth. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

91-94 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "From the upper part, three plots. It is in tank having been racked and fined. Fuller colour in primrose style. This is a very fresh nose rather than the heavier style. Further back on the palate the weight of this terroir starts to show. A good example of Meursault Perrières."
