DescriptionBouchard Pere & Fils Genevrieres, Meursault Premier Cru, France 2006, 375ml
WINE ADVOCATEBouchard’s 2006 Meursault Genevrieres smells of coconut, litchi, candied lime, and brown spices. Combining doughy substantiality, polished richness of texture and luscious citricity, it finishes with formidable persistence of exotic, extroverted spice, citrus, and tropical fruits. I suspect it might evolve more rapidly than the corresponding Gouttes d’Or.
VINOUSBright straw-yellow. Pungent, high-pitched aromas of white peach, lime and violet. Suave on entry, then juicy and aromatic in the middle palate, with lovely floral lift to the flavors of white peach and lime. Intensely flavored but subtle and delicate, especially for the vintage. Today this dry, vibrant wine comes across as longer and firmer than the Charmes, and considerably less oaky.
WINE SPECTATOROak spice, buttery pastry, hazelnut and lime combine to seduce the palate in this alluring white, which is seamless from start to finish and leaves a lush impression with vanilla tones.
BURGHOUND(from a bottle opened at the domaine). Moderately golden color. A fully mature, spicy and mildly exotic nose features aromas of white peach, mandarin orange and hints of Asian-style tea. There is excellent richness and body to the dense, even opulent medium-bodied flavors that possess a caressing mouth feel, all wrapped in a delicious and lightly mineral-inflected finish that delivers fine length along with a trace of warmth. For my taste this has arrived at its peak and while there is no further development potential to be realized, neither is there any need to drink up. Like most '06s, this isn't an elegant vintage for the Bouchard Genevrières but it does offer fine depth and persistence.
