Domaine Jean Monnier


Stephen Brook

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Oaky but bright nose with apricots, pears, and wet stones. Lean and precise, with a silky texture and great finesse. There’s intensity, purity and admirable acidity to lift the mid-palate and finish. It’s not that expressive now, but the oak is well integrated, the fruit poised and lifted, and fine length, with a saline finish.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Clean and open with a medium intensity of aroma. Notes of macadamias and cashew with stony minerals and white peach. Palate is dry and concentrated with oatmeal, citrus notes and stone fruits. Lovely acidity and minerality with lots of potential. Plenty of pleasure here.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Yellow fruits on the nose, over dry herbs and dry honey. Already showing complexity and the naturally concentrated fruits show this. Good, grippy, fruit on the palate with quite high acidity, but this will help it mature. This is a vigourously assertive wine, but all in balance, with a very good future and lots of character and complexity to come.
