Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Powerful oaky nose. Rich and assertive, as bold style with a lot of presence. Very in your face and thus far from subtle, but none the worse for that. The acidic pungency is admirable but needs a year or two to settle down. It’s rewarding to find such power not being allied to high alcohol. Good length.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

The nose is restrained with stone fruits and oaky notes. The palate is dry and textured, with, again, stone fruits but still quite tight. The acid brings some relief to the oak. The finish is of meduium length.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Ripe honey and dry herbs nose and lots of citrussy summer fruits. Fleshy, quite oily and still some oak there, but good fleshy texture that blends well with the lemony flavours. Quite a solid wine, needs time to express itself and has a good future.
