Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Waxy but limpid apricot nose, lifted and fresh. Fine attack, concentrated, citric and racy, taut and tangy, very mineral and pure, yet it also has depth of flavour and considerable complexity. Good length and impeccable balance.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

The nose has stone fruit character and minerality, with nicely toned oak. The palate is dry with refreshing acidity, the stone fruit notes are here as is lovely minerality and poise. Very classy indeed and a long finish.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Yellow fruits and spicy herb nose with creamy elements. Fine, full flavour and fine mineral/stony finish, very good presence and length, alcohol is a bit high, but this shows the ripeness of the vintage and will blend in as it matures to a very good future.
