    October 16, 2018 - Last of 6, pnp, perfect cork and level, probably best bottle, fresh young, pale, marvelous tension, minerality and balance, bags of life. F+ (18).

    February 6, 2018 - 5th of 6, pnp, perfect cork and level, still youthful colour, but broader flavours and less zip, fully mature, less attractive than last bottle. F (17.5).

    November 27, 2016 - 4th of 6, pnp, perfect cork and level, splendid bottle, pale, youthful, multi layered, fine minerality, length and persistence, lovely balance and lemon zest, best bottle yet by far. F+ (18).

    August 17, 2016 - Nose here is clean with lifted mineral and sour apple notes. Round fruit and crunchy acids. Youthful fruit of apples and citrus. A little one-dimensional and simple.

    (Bouchard Père et Fils Meursault Perrières) Medium-pale colour - certainly looks okay. The nose is wide, showing soft fruit and faint lanolin with an even fainter citrus veil - a faint caramel note eventually escapes the glass. Perfect acidity, a little linear in the mid-palate and a super acid-driven length. Not as ‘giving’ as 3 years ago, but understated excellence, still.

    (Bouchard Père et Fils Meursault Perrières) Medium lemon yellow. The nose is fresh and understated, yet offers up many layers with a faintly creamy edge. The palate is concentrated yet also understatedly provides layers and layers of interest - I'm now regretting that only 4 more lie in the cellar. Lovely acidity and length. Wonderful in an understated way.

    (Bouchard Père et Fils Meursault Perrières) Medium lemon yellow. The nose is fresher than the Charmes, perhaps a little sweet lime, but there's faint butter and a brooding, creamy base below. The palate is concentrated without being over-fat, it's perfectly balanced with the acidity too. There's a seamless ride from first impression, to mid-palate, to the achingly long, creamy finish. The wine hasn't the impressive minerality of the best Perrières I've tasted (Roulot's 2000) but this is a very convincing effort and one-third of the price - I've already added a half-dozen to the cellar.
