Tasting Notes

93 Points Allen Meadows
The naturally exotic nose freely offers up notes of spiced tea, matchstick, citrus and white orchard fruit. The generous if not lush medium weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality onto the sappy, refined, focused and lingering finish. This classy effort is more forward than it usually is and should be approachable early on.

91-93 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières is another of the highlights chez Bouchard this year, unfurling in the glass with aromas of green orchard fruit, Meyer lemon and hazelnut cream. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy but incisive, with tangy acids, excellent balance and impressive length. Structurally, the wine is deceptively open, but I suspect it will tense up by the time it’s bottled.
