1995 Rene Manuel Mersault “Clos des Bouches Cheres”

($25): Lemon and toasted oak aromas and flavors. It’s got a little stink that can be expected in a young Mersault. Tart acidity. Disjointed now, it has the stuffing to age for years. Definitely worth looking for. At this price, I added a few bottles to the cellar.
