Very typical from Meursault, a little tense, with a beautiful acidity. Not very sensitive to over maturity. It's a sappy wine and energise with a good balance.
Can be aged.
Ideal for an unostentatious Meursault lover.

Reviews

"Pale lemon. The bouquet is completely different, much more muscular, even a bit of bacon fat. Then freshens up in the glass. This is very powerful stuff, 13.5%, but it is completely consistent all the way through. Needs more elevage. Is going to be really impressive for village Meursault. Close to a fifth star."
