Beaune Clos des Ursules Domaine des Heritiers Louis Jadot 94 Jg 2010
"There have been so many outstanding vintages of Clos des Ursules over the last twenty-five years that it is hard to say that the 2010 is the best of this fine run, but if it is not the finest, it is right up there with the other absolutely reference point vintages of Clos des Ursules, as this wine is stunning.

This review is for the 2009 vintage, which I couldn't find on Snooth. Pale straw color, lots of fruit and good acidity, with a slightly warm, nutty flavor in the middle. Short, tart aftertaste that leaves you wanting another sip. Very nice for the price ($12ish at Stew Leonard's).

The lovely, elegant Chardonnay has nice buttery notes with honeyed pear and fresh apples, offset by a gentle touch of vanilla. Excellent balance of fruit and acidity on the palate with a lingering finish.
Here the wood is almost invisible with classic aromas of mineral-reduction, acacia blossom and various citrus elements, in particular lemon and grapefruit. There is terrific delineation and detail to the caressing and overtly stony flavors that posse... Burghound. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2010 Louis Jadot Meursault Perrieres 750ml
