Product:

Domaine Bernard Millot, Les Perrieres, Meursault 1er Cru, Burgundy, 2010

Producer:

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Rich toasty nose, a touch oily, but has powerful apricot fruit. Good attack, leading to a massive and concentrated palate, with depth and power. The oak is a bit strident now, but will integrate with more time. The acidity is moderate, so there’s a slight lack of backbone and structure, but it’s an impressive wine. Quite long.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Quite exotic nose, with hay and dry herbs. The palate is juicy with a stony background. Holding everything together is the good acid and structure, with a long, pleasing finish.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Quite rich (for Perrieres), yellow fruits dominate and oak is still there to add structure, but it needs to blend in. Phenolic and broad flavoured, has an unexpected sweetness, is smooth and ripe, and some complexity to come.
