2007 Bouzereau Michel, Meursault Les Grands CharronsMay. 2009
Medium-pale yellow. The nose starts a little diffuse. In the mouth it’s very fresh but seems overly dilute – I think it’s too cold – let’s wait for the contents of the glass to warm a little. Warmer, the nose is a little tighter though offers slightly sherbert-style fruit aromas. In the mouth it’s gained a surprising amount of fat – this now almost good – slowly lingering in the finish. Quite pretty, fresh and clean – it’s tasty, but it says Meursault on the label and much as I enjoyed it, I’m torn as to whether I see that level of performance.
2004 Bouzereau Michel, Puligny-Montrachet Champs GainsAug. 2006
Just a little darker yellow than I would like for a ‘new’ wine. Delicate nose with a hint of green pea (like a red in malo) that eventually becomes more golden and honeyed. Nice texture, balance and an interesting length, but this wine is lacking both density and dimension vs Lamy’s 04 St.Aubin Remilly. A nice enough wine, and despite its reasonable cost, if this bottle is representative it is some way short of showing value.
2004 Bouzereau Michel, Meursault Les Grands CharronsJul. 2006
Golden already. The nose starts a little creamy with silky, honied fruit. The palate is okay – nice enough acidity and a slowly fading finish – Good but not great villages.
2000 Bouzereau Michel, Bourgogne ChardonnayJul. 2003
Pale lemon yellow colour. There’s a pleasing, high toned citrussy nose. The sweet palate has good fat and a light nutty tone. I would have preferred a touch more acidity, but it’s not bad. In fact it’s rather nice – good value too. A good wine.
