Meursault Perrieres, Bouchard Père et Fils 2007
A less expressive but even more complex nose features acacia blossom, pear and citrus aromas nuanced by an almost pungent minerality that continues onto the pure, detailed and almost painfully intense flavors that possess serious delineation on the notably ripe and sappy finish. I was knocked out by this textbook Perrières. Highly recommended. Drink 2015+

The Bouchard 2007 Meursault Perrieres is more vibrant and dynamic as well as more pronouncedly and complexly mineral than the estate's other 2007 vintage Meursault bottlings, exhibiting a rich texture allied to a vibratory intensity of interchange between citric, pit fruit, mineral, and rich toasted nut, grain, and malt elements. Zesty, chalky, and saline notes add invigoration in the finish, and the high-toned aromas here suggest distilled strength, and spirituous penetration. "Penetrating" is also the word for the dynamically complex finish here. I would anticipate following this with high expectations over the next 8-10 years.
