Always an appealing and very classic style of Meursault with hints of honey, quince, mango and fresh double cream. Despite its ripe exotic fruit character, it has a balancing freshness providing drive and energy. A very rewarding wine.
On the nose this wine shows character with yellow fruit aromas -pear and apple -also found in the mouth: supple and very fresh, harmonious, pleasant and persistent. It is a classic Meursault and a great wine for ageing.
Serving suggestion: If the wine is consumed young, serve with shellfish, cold terrines or potted meat and white meat; after 5 to 7 years, with foie gras, blue cheese and goat’s cheese.

The utterly delicious and caressing middle weight flavors coat the palate with dry extract while delivering very fine complexity and persistence on the citrus-inflected finale. This is at once lovely but quite serious. Outstanding. Top value. Drink 2023+.
STEPHEN TANZER, SEPTEMBER 2018, SCORE: 89-91
Straw-yellow. Fresh aromas of ripe apricot, peach and gingery spices. Concentrated and dry-verging-on-austere, with its fruit currently dominated by a stony mineral underpinning. This dry, saline wine boasts good material but it will need some time in bottle to harmonize its tartaric edge and chewy tannins. Finishes with very good length and grip. This was the highest 2017 in acidity at harvest after the Tête de Murger, noted Marion Javillier
