Meursault Les Clous, Bouchard Père et Fils 2017
An appealingly fresh nose displays cool, airy and citrusy aromas of apple, pear, white flower and soft wood nuances. There is both good richness and energy to the nicely detailed and stony flavors that possess a generous mid-palate mouth feel, all wrapped in a dry and youthfully austere finish. This is a quality Meursault villages.

Tasted from bottle, the 2017 Meursault Les Clous confirms its strong showing from barrel, exhibiting aromas of crisp Anjou pear, dried white flowers, beeswax and blanched almonds. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with excellent tension and depth at the core and an elegantly chalky finish. While it's a little shut down after its recent bottling, its quality is not in doubt.

The 2017 Meursault Les Clous offers up aromas of citrus rind, crisp orchard fruit, white flowers and pastry cream. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, tense and tangy, with chewy phenolic structure, good concentration and juicy acids. It's an excellent Meursault village from Bouchard.
