Domaine Michel Bouzereau et Fils, Meursault (Burgundy, France) “Les Grands Charrons” 2018

($68, Jeanne-Marie de Champs Selection):  It’s hard to go wrong with the wines from Domaine Michel Bouzereau, a leading name in Meursault.  Here are my notes for this wine from a visit in November 2019: “Good as most people’s 1er cru.  Gorgeous acidity and presence.  Clean and precise.  Long and minerals.  Precise, cutting.  Impeccable balance.”  Now that it’s bottled and arrived on our shores, it has closed up.  Indeed, its grandeur and appeal became apparent only after it sat opened for a day in the fridge.  Then, the alluring combination of subtle creaminess, spice, and riveting acidity was center stage.  My advice is to buy as much as you can afford and cellar it for a few years.
