2016 Meursault, 1er Cru Charmes, Domaine Michel Bouzereau (6 x Bottle)

France Burgundy Beaune

The 2016 Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes-Dessus was not touched by the frost (confusingly unlike Les Charmes-Dessous); however, I still found the nose more straightforward than previous vintages such as the 2015 and 2014. The palate is better with good weight in the mouth and sufficient acidity to lend tension, though I would like more mineralité and terroir expression to evolve with bottle age. Not bad, but there are other 2016s from the domaine that I prefer this year.
