Stephen Brook

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Delicate, oaky, appley nose. Lean and tight, has precision rather than opulence, taut and stony with a pronounced minerality and considerable finesse. The fruit is subdued but that’s fine with a young white Burgundy. This is classy and very long.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

The nose has spicy, smoky notes with some straw touches. Palate is intense and complex with stone fruits, salty minerals and high toned acidity. This is really focused with a long finish and great potential for pleasure for many years to come.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Fine nose of dry herbs and dry honey. Beautiful expression, combining vigour and vineyard depth, lots of energy and clarity, this is a Grand Cru standard Meursault. Great texture, depth, length and a superb future.
