Olivier Leflaive

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Assertively oaky nose, leaving the fruit rather submerged. Fine attack, fresh and limpid, with good acidity to carry the wine along the palate. The oak is present on the aftertaste, but it should integrate with more time. The attack is better than the finish, which is more solid and pedestrian. Moderate length and a hint of bitterness on the finish.

Gearoid Devaney

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

The nose is bright and fresh with smoky notes. The palate is intense, with stone fruits, flinty smoke, nutty oak and lots more going on. The minerals are pure and the weight and texture finely tuned.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Fine florality over dry herbs and dry honey on the nose. Already open and expressive on the palate, yet still with great firmness of fruit for the future. Citrus elements dominate at the moment, lots of tension and energy, a fine wine with a long life in front of it.
