Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Heavy oily nose, a trace of oxidation. Broad, lush, opulent, creamy but heavy, with a lack of flair and freshness. Not actually blowsy but heading in that direction.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Smoky with yellow spices on the nose, the oak is prominent. The palate is intense with lots of smoky notes, cleansing acidity, good balance and a long finish.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Rather oily, quite phenolic rich nose and same on the palate. A full, rich wine that owes more to weight than finesse and so does not have a long future.
