Notes from the winemaker:

On the "terroir" of Meursault, some of the vineyards classed as a village apellation are situated on marly ground, identical to the Corton- Charlemagne Grand Cru (only the topography and altitude are different). These vineyards of a quality equivalent to that of a Premier Cru deserve to be vinified separately. This is the case for vines from the
terroir of Les Clous whose name apparently not too flattering comes in fact from a deformation of the word "Clos". The Bouchard Père et Fils estate owns 8.64 hectares here, i.e. almost half of the total area.

Tasting Notes:
Intense bouquet of fruit and flowers. This wine is both subtle and very lively. Good ageing potential.


Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - James Suckling:
"This has an attractive fusion of yellow grapefruit and lemon with white nectarines. The palate has great focus and freshness with ripe citrus fruit and white peaches. Drink in the next six to eight years." - (February 12, 2019)

89-91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2017 Meursault Les Clous offers up aromas of citrus rind, crisp orchard fruit, white flowers and pastry cream. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, tense and tangy, with chewy phenolic structure, good concentration and juicy acids. It's an excellent Meursault village from Bouchard." - William Kelley (4th Jan 2019)

88-90 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2017 Meursault Les Clous comes from 8.5-hectare parcel, a substantial plot. It has a light, stony bouquet that just needs to reflect more of the appellation’s characteristics - more nuttiness, please! The palate is crisp and fresh on the entry, offering citrus peel and lime and a touch of spice toward the linear, moderately long finish." - Neal Martin (Jan 2019)
