Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Muted apricot nose. Rich, bold, assertive, very concentrated with a good deal of spice. It may lack elegance, but has power and complexity to compensate. Good length.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Golden yellow hue. Ripe mango and cinnamon spice on the nose. The palate is rich and full bodied; lots of texture and salty minerals, this has lots of class and potential.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Quite full, herby, yellow summer fruits. Naturally rich (14% alcohol) and so quite fleshy, but this is balanced by lemony acidity. A good, slightly sweet,broad wine that will develop well but never gain too much finesse.
