Product:

Vincent Girardin, Les Perrieres, Meursault 1er Cru, Burgundy, 2010

Producer:

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Oaky apple compote and apricot nose. Good attack, very concentrated, has precision and drive, and there’s minerality beneath the ripe fruit, and fine acidity too. A classic style, not at all flashy, but poised and elegant, with a very long stony finish.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

The nose has smoky oak with underlying peach and nectarine. The palate is racey, with the oak and fruit well-intergrated and the acidity, and minerality giving the whole middle a lift. Very good balance and long finish.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Ripe, stone fruits nose, white peach over very ripe pears, phenolic oak still slightly present. Rich and ripe, a bit over-rich, and although the high natural acidity balances the wine, there is too much robustness and not enough stony complexity for Perrieres, being rather heavy and phenolic.
