The honey, white peach, apple and subtle lime blossom aromas and flavors in this elegant white are compelling. Takes a soft-sell approach, with enticing complexity and intensity, set on a light-weight frame. Terrific length. Drink now through 2025. 150 cases imported.

The best of Bouchard's array of Meursaults in 2017, this hails from two parcels, both in Genevrières Dessus; a total of 2.65ha. Pale, scented and well balanced, it has spicy 15% new wood, good texture and weight, and notes of citrus and beeswax. Drinking Window 2020-2025.

Youthfully reticent aromas of crisp Anjou pear, blanched almonds, Meyer lemon and hints of praline introduce the 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières, a medium to full-bodied, deep and tensile wine that's impressively concentrated and nicely defined. This confirms its strong showing from barrel; indeed, the wine has gained in tension since I tasted it in December. While it's a little shut down after its recent bottling, it should drink very well with a bit of bottle age.

Some complex and exotic fruit here, from two plots, offering ripe peach aromas, as well as yellow citrus and stones. The palate has a smoothly succulent feel with light honey and white almond-nougat notes, across ripe peaches. Drink in the next six years.

The naturally exotic nose freely offers up notes of spiced tea, matchstick, citrus and white orchard fruit. The generous if not lush medium weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality onto the sappy, refined, focused and lingering finish. This classy effort is more forward than it usually is and should be approachable early on.
