Meursault Premier Cru Wine
Simply amazing, possibly the best white I've ever had (not to mention the most expensive white I've ever had). The sweet peach, melon and an added citric sharpness together with a solid crispness and refreshing after taste just makes me savour every drop.

The nose is a typical Meursault with notes of pear, citrus and peach. At first, the minerality dominates with a silex-like style, giving way to a beautiful round structure with well integrated oak flavours of vanilla and butter. Even though this wine m...

2012 was a rough vintage for Burgundy due to bad weather, hail, crop damage but early reports show the fruit came out , while down in yields, pretty darn good. More intensity to the fruit than say 2009 but not as over the top as 2005. This probably isn't a finessed Meursault. It will have richness to the fruit but won't be flabby. Read More
