2019 Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Meursault Perrieres Premier Cru
Here too the nose is firmly reduced and revealing nothing. By contrast there is excellent, indeed almost painful intensity to the citrusy mineral-driven flavors that don't have the same concentration or complexity. While I wouldn't describe this as light, it is certainly lighter than the other Meursault 1ers. With that said, this wine often adds weight with time and bottle and the 2019 version will likely do the same. Drink 2026+.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
The 2019 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières is very promising, delivering notes of citrus oil, white flowers, mandarin, fresh bread and struck match. Medium to full-bodied, racy and chiseled, it's bright and mineral, with a tight, tangy profile that's defined by the site more than the vintage.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
The 2019 Meursault Les Perrières 1er Cru is quite intense on the nose, although I found more terroir expression on the Genevrières by comparison. The well-balanced palate has a saline entry, a fine bead of acidity and an intense, quite citric finish; good salinity on the aftertaste. This Les Perrières has plenty of energy and should offer 15–20 years’ drinking. Drink 2023 - 2043.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Full lemon yellow the most compete nose of the big three, combining aspects of the other two. Pears in the background, starts discreetly then really kicks on before reaching a complex powerful finish with very good acidity. High class wine here with excellent length.
