93-95 Points Allen Meadows
Outstanding, Exuberantly fresh and elegant aromas combine notes of acacia blossom rose petal white peach spiced pear and a whisper of just grated lemon zest. The strikingly fine middle weight flavors are almost delicate yet display excellent intensity on the focused and highly persistent finish that flashes superb complexity. As are all the best examples of Bouchères this is a wine of finesse with knockout length.

The 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Clos des Bouchères is also very charming this year wafting from the glass with aromas of pear white flowers clear honey almond paste and pastry cream. On the palate it’s medium to full-bodied textural but incisive with less flesh on its bones than the Charmes but a racier more dynamic spine of acidity concluding with a precise finish. This is another superlative Clos des Bouchères in the making.
