Jean-Philippe Fichet Meursault les Gruyaches 2007
External Reviews for Jean-Philippe Fichet Meursault les Gruyaches
Chalky and alkaline notes announce themselves here already in the nose, while fresh lime, white peach, celery root, toasted hazelnut, lightly caramelized parsnip, and milled grain make for a complex amalgam of quite disparate but not discordant elements. This finishes with a shimmering, mouth-shaking sense of mineral-fruit exchange that this vintage can bring, and with saliva-inducing penetration. Fichet opines that it needs 4ndash;5 years to really harmonize, and based on my thus far limited experience with older bottles, Irsquo;d predict it will surely still give pleasure 6ndash;8 years from now.
Good bright yellow. Subdued aromas of orange, lemon and vanilla. Rich and sweet but firm, thanks to a lovely core of acidity. Offers a silky texture but also plenty of energy to the lemon and mineral flavors. Very nicely balanced and concentrated Meursault.
Complex aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, stone and vanilla. Fat, dense and very ripe, conveying a creamy old-vines richness leavened by firm acidity. The pineapple fruit is complicated by floral and spice notes.
