"Palish bright yellow. Lovely verve to the aromas of lemon zest, white pepper, flowers and stony minerality. Generous on entry, then concentrated and taut in the mid-palate, showing penetrating flavors of lemon ice and white pepper. Really clamps down on the finish. This classically dry Meursault boasts very good potential but will need time--and food!" (VM)

"The ever-so-slightly riper nose consists of pretty floral and white orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in hints of wet stone and wood. There is once again excellent volume and mid-palate richness to the caressing but energetic medium-bodied flavors that exhibit excellent length on the textured finale where an interesting hint of fennel appears. This too is worth a look." (BH)

Winery Notes:
This wine from steep slopes with clayey-calcareous subsoils is always strongly marked by its terroir. Its mineral and flinty character is unique in Meursault. You will notice the contrast between minerality and notes of honey in the bouquet. The rich, fruity and powerful aromas are highlighted by spicy and mineral notes. Delicious exotic dishes will pair perfectly with this complex wine, whose personality will have fully developed after three to seven years in the bottle.
