Bouchard Meursault les Perrieres 2007, 750mL (BH94, WA93, ST93, WS93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Bouchard Meursault les Perrieres

750mL

Vintage: 2007
Region: France--Burgundy--White
Appellation: Meursault, Cote de Beaune

BH94, WA93, ST93, WS93
Rated 93 points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `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.` -- David Schildknecht in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `Philippe Prost`s late-August starting date for the 2007 white harvest reflects not simply the enormous acreage over which Bouchard holds sway. (In fact, they can muster correspondingly large forces and their gargantuan facility with its battery of presses can handle the harvest in ten days if need be.) It is also a function of assiduous yield control that promotes ripening, and of a professed interest in capturing freshness and vivacity. Furthermore, picking extended for 18 days, until mid-September, and most of the estate`s top sites were brought in near the end. And with the exception of a Pouilly-Fuisse rendered from contract fruit, none of the 2007 whites here were chaptalized. Most came in a bit over 13% alcohol and - as Prost asserts and his wines testify - with excellent phenolic maturity. Prost prefers to avoid sulfuring the fruit or must, letting it darken from oxidation during its period of skin contact and settling because, in his view, not only the color but the flavors bounce back as soon as the juice starts fermenting, and the resulting wine is both more expressive and more stable. `You know,` he says by way of general commentary on the evolution of Bouchard vinification, `a few years ago we were too concerned to be clean and clinical` with the result that `the wines were closed,` especially in their youth. No one could level that charge at the wines now, even if some are subtle and understated. The question now - just as at other Burgundy addresses - is how white wines from the last several vintages will age. Among many recent changes made at Bouchard in the name (dare I interject, `hope`?) of reducing instances of premature oxidation and bottle variation are blanketing the assembled wines in nitrogen, a sophisticated new bottling protocol, and the use of Diam (specially treated composite) corks for village level wines and dense corks from Sardinia for crus.`
