Meursault 1er Cru "Perrières" 2014, Bitouzet-Prieur


The Bitouzet-Prieur domaine has two of the top three Meursault premiers crus although people often don't pay so much attention to the Genevrières as they should. Having tasted the Meursault-Charmes from François Bitouzet several times I was eager to taste this Meursault-Perrières. This 2014 Meursault premier cru has an immediately appealing nose of satsuma, lemon and nectarine. Lovely balance. Ripe, delicious, sweetness with minerality. There's a gorgeous plumpness. Scores 24-27/30 for a Meursault premier cru. My question is whether without  much (or any?) new oak, the wine will add layers of complexity on the nose after 5 years or so in the bottle.
