Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Rich apricot and apple nose with stylish oak. Rich, plump, has fine typicity and a creamy texture, concentrated and balanced by fine acidity. A luxurious style, but may lack the structure for long ageing, and not sure it will develop more complexity. Quite long.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Yellow colour with lots of viscosity. The nose is open with peach, apricot and a beeswax character. The palate is full-bodied with fresh acidity, salty minerals and lots of potential for improvement. The finish is long with a touch of alcohol heat.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Quite broad and rich on the nose, more yellow than white fruits, and a marked phenolic aspect, perhaps due to oak ageing. Rich on the palate, almost sweet, with a nice touch of acidity to lift up the finish, but overall a rounded, rich style that will mature early.
