Stephen Brook

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Sweet oaky nose, apricot jam, a bit obvious. Quite rich, super-ripe, and thus lacks some edge and vivacity. There is some minerally acidity, but it tastes tacked on rather than integrated. Forthright but far from subtle.Moderate length.

Gearoid Devaney

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Exotic fruit nose with oaky notes., The palate has forward fruit of peach and mango, good acid, the structure is good and the backbone of limestone minerality is very present just to the end. The finish is long and complex.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Lifted, floral, yellow fruit nose, dry honey and oak perfectly blended in. Rich flavours, typical of Charmes, with a lifted citrussy element and great presence, and length. The finish is pure with lemony minerality, and this wine will show brilliantly in the future.
