Bouzereau Meursault Les Tessons 2015
According to Jean-Baptiste Bouzereau, 2015 “presented us with an easy growing season, and for the first time in years, we even obtained reasonable quantities. Even so, it appeared that we would have a huge production, but in the end, there wasn’t all that much juice in the berries, so yields turned out to be normal.” The Les Tessons vineyard lies among a cluster of lieu dit vineyards just west of the village. Burgundy authority, Clive Coates MW named Domaine Michel Bouzereau as one of the “best cellars for (these) Deuxièmes Crus.” Coates went on to call the domaine the “best of the Bouzereau cellars [with] fine, racy, stylish wines which can be held longer than most.” Bouzereau began picking his 2015 a little early, in late August, preserving the zippy acidity levels a ripe vintage like 2015 needed for balance. Burghound’s Allen Meadows writes that the domaine’s 2015 clearly outperformed the general quality of the vintage. The wine is showing lovely aromas of citrus, peach, apple, and a hint of smoke. Drink from 2018-2028.
