Product:

Buisson Battault, Charmes, Meursault 1er Cru, Burgundy, 2010

Producer:

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Rich almondy nose, lush and oaky. Very ripe and concentrated, but also pungent thanks to fine acidity. This has the heft of Charmes but not at the expense of minerality and vigour. Very long.

Gearoid Devaney

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Nose is open with lots of yellow apple and peach, plus toasty notes as well. The palate is rich with soft, white fleshed fruit in the middle and an oatmeal character. The acid is good and brings balance, with wet stone flavours on the long finish.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Quite heady, almost exotic yellow summer fruits, still slightly phenolic from the oak. Rich, almost sweet, with a strong lemony core of acidity to hold it back. Good broad wine, a bit too massive at the moment to show complexity for the future.
