I love boussey. The wines have that combination of dense but moderate fruit, minerality and acidity. And all of that is a backdrop to nicely delineated secondary flavors. Really so juicy too. Great with food.
The nose here is mineral. But minerals from petrified flowers. Really beautiful.
Palate is spring mountain stream wet rocks downstream of Macintosh and green apples. Ok maybe not exactly Macintosh but I love Macintosh so that’s what I’m going with. It’s my tasting note so buzz off.
Lovely mineral finish. Really lingers. So fresh.
There’s like a hint of meursaulty denseness and a kiss of unct (the single unit of unctuousness). Otherwise I wouldnt even guess meursault even with a. Hint. It’s so fine.
As this opens its richer and denser. Some spice on the finish.
Man I love this producer. I guess I said that already. — a day ago
Light gold. Heavy. Cork smells of taint but the wine in the glass doesn’t. Citrus and white clay notes, plus apricot, cantaloupe, some tan spice and crushed stone. Vibrant fruit and acidity. Over time the cork taint became more evident but didn’t overly detract from what is a petty good wine. — 13 days ago
Debut vintage of this very small production little low key star wine a Girard. Right below the Corton-Charlemagne in pricing. Stunning nose of meyer lemon, hint of sweet wood, mineral, saline, stunningly pure and deep aromas. It’s so expressive but also in that classic Girard super transparent way. It’s so Meursault. The nose is indescribable. Haunting, classic and beautiful and most important it’s an open knit nose unlike the Corton Charlie which needs 5 years to become drinkable. This is raring to go. Palate is racy, opulent and super mineral. It’s so distinct. Huge concentration and also stunning levels of a wall of flavor of minerality and sweet lime and lemon. Incredible texture and super racy and vivacious. It’s such a classic Meursault in that it’s got all the buttery richness, all the intense rocky minerality and salinity, but also the grace, finesse and elegance of the Girard style. This is an accomplished wine and a great debut and an important new wine in the Girard lineup. — 15 days ago
Always a treat to open this Charmes. Nose has loads of baking spices, green apple skins, huge clear minerality, like smelling fresh air, gorgeous hint of florals, zero sense of woods unreal purity on this, palate is superbly complex, linear with great energy and a sappy intense mineral driven structure. Such a lean Charmes! Love it. That opulence and richness one can get from Charmes is there but man is this chiseled. Gorgeous. Insane complexity already. Chewy and structured and gets richer with air but the chisel stays as is. — 15 days ago
