Tasting Notes

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.

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.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (75), June 2019

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.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate, January 2019

Pale lemon in colour with ripe pear and buttery citrus on the nose. This has a savoury, classic edge to the aromas. Soft and approachable, creamy stone fruits and flecks of citrus are lifted by bright but not overpowering acidity. There is a hint of smoky reduction but it is very slight and integrated into the wine. The breadth of creamy, fleshy fruit lingers through to the finish. Great Meursault typicity. Perfect to drink now, or over the next 4-5 years.
