Stephen Brook

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Oaky nose, pear clafouti. Rich and supple, moderately concentrated, a rather soft style that lacks edge and bite. The acidity is there but doesn’t seem entirely ripe. This lacks drive and persistence, and shows some flab on the finish. Medium length.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Stone fruits on the nose but oak is strong and toasty. Shame, the palate is too oaky and makes it hard to enjoy right now.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Floral white flowers nose with honeyed elements, oak still a bit present. Good lifted fruit and smooth, ripe flavours backed by good natural acidity, a certain precocious charm for Genevrieres. A polished, elegant wine that is already showing well.
