Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Hefty oaky nose, waxy, overdone. Plump, rounded, juicy, and a bit heavy and clumsy despite the acidity. There’s a slight phenolic character that gives a certain earthiness, and the finish lacks finesse and drive. Quite long.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Nutty, toasty nose. Bright acid, really pure with a lime shot at the finish. The flavours are pure and mineral, with the oak being well handled. Long and taut with lots of nervous energy; will still improve.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Rich and slightly oily fruit on the nose but much better expression and life on the palate. Quite broad and full, with good natural acidity. A bit chunky and phenolic, but will show well mid term.
