Description

On the 'terroir' of Meursault, some of the vineyards classified as village appellation are situated on a marly ground, identical to the Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (only the altitude and topography are different). These vineyards of great quality deserve to be vinified separately. This is the case for the terroir of Les Clous whose name apparently comes from a deformation of the word 'Clos'. The Bouchard Pere & Fils estate owns 8.64 hectares here is almost half of the total area.

Review

Ripe aromas of hazelnut, pear and apple compote are trimmed in soft nuances of citrus and oak. There is excellent volume to the rich but vibrant medium weight flavours that exude evident minerality on the slightly more complex and youthfully austere finale that is noticeably firmer. This will need at least a couple of years.

Tasting Profile

Palate
Intense bouquet of fruit and flowers combined with a delicate mineral hint. Rich and subtle with good crisp acidity creating a balanced wine. Good ageing potential.
