2016 Bouchard Père et Fils Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières Magnum
Cellar Tracker Community 92.7 points (as of 5/31/19)
Burghound 93 points! Here there is no reductive funk with its elegant, airy and cool aromas of citrus peel, acacia, spice and a whiff of Granny Smith apples. The middle weight and focused flavors are stony to the point of imparting the sense of rolling a small pebble around in the mouth, all wrapped in linear, energetic and very dry but not austere finale. This definitely needs time to flesh out and unwind as it's very tight at present.
Vinous (Stephen Tanzer) 92 points! (rated 9/1/18) - Pale, bright yellow. Lively aromas of ginger, orange zest and crushed rock. At once sweet, fine-grained and vibrant, with harmonious acidity giving shape and lift to the ripe pineapple, stone fruit and almond flower flavors. Impressively dense, even thick, for the year, with a plush, long, very ripe yet surprisingly dry aftertaste. This Perrières really dusts the palate. The wine's savory minerality should enable it to evolve gracefully. (Drink between 2021-2028)
