Henri de Villamont, Caillerets, Meursault 1er Cru, Burgundy, 2010

Producer:

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Sprightly, tangy nose, very mineral and reminiscent of Chablis with green apples and moderate oak. Plump, generous, has abundant fruit and considerable depth of flavour, all supported by fine acidity. Mouth-watering and long.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Lovely nose, inviting yellow peach and oatmeal. The palate is textured with lovely, crushed sea shell minerals and warmth in the middle. Ripe stone fruits and toasty, balanced oak. This is a wine with lots of complexity and depth.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Nicely concentrated, lemony nose with good depth and a slight phenolic nuttiness. Ripe, natural fruit on the palate and seems fleshier than its 12.5% alcohol would suggest and a fine stony finish. A very well-made wine from a good vineyard that’s impressive now, with great potential to develop further complexity in the future.
