Tasting Notes (Nov 2018) by Neal Martin

Posted on Posted in Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur

2015 Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur Meursault Les Charmes 1er Cru
The 2015 Meursault Les Charmes 1er Cru sports very slight reduction on the nose, but the terroir comes through: fine definition, scents of crushed stone and a little walnut, a subtle marine influence in the background. The palate is well defined with a crisp bead of acidity, saline in the mouth, with a pinch of lemongrass toward the finish. Very fine. There is good winemaking here, but it needs three or four more years. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.

2015 Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur Meursault Les Perrières 1er Cru
The 2015 Meursault Les Perrières 1er Cru has a very sophisticated, understated bouquet that is beautifully defined, with great focus and real mineralité flooding through with aeration. The succinct palate offers lip-smacking salinity, just the right amount of reduction and outstanding concentration toward the curry-leaf-tinged finish. A fabulous Les Perrières. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
