La Goutte d'Or

Grape Variety:Chardonnay
Drink:2012 - 2016

Product:

Domaine Bernard Millot, La Goutte d’Or, Meursault 1er Cru, Burgundy, 2010

Producer:

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Oily oaky nose, heavy-handed and lacks finesse. Lush, broad, rather heavy, and while it has an appealing creaminess, it lacks elegance and poise. Reasonable acidity, so it has decent length, but overall a fairly old-fashioned expression of Meursault.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

The nose is open and has stone fruits and smoky oak. The palate has yellow fruits and good acid without the weight and minerals showing off.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Floral, yellow fruits on the nose, quite honeyed and herby. Very good natural richness on the palate, dry honey and dried fruit present and oak still evident. Still a bit phenolic and the alcohol comes through on the finish. A broad, robust Meursault for the mid-term.
