The purity of expression here is simply magnificent with the classic assertive mineral character that suffuses this wine from beginning to end. Superbly well balanced with rich, indeed pungent, harmonious and beautifully complex flavors supported by a solid acid spine continuing into the lengthy, almost painfully intense finish. If there is a nit despite the superb raw materials, it's that this is not a particularly elegant wine, in fact it's borderline robust. That said, this is a mouthful of wine that makes a firm statement and one that should drink well for a long time.
Citrus skin, minerals and spicy oak. Very intensely flavored, minerally and precise; at once densely packed and bright. The wine stoniness adds to its inner-mouth aromatic quality. The very long, firm finish has a density and minerality verging on painful. One of my favorite premier crus of the vintage.
Seamless elegance in this intense and gorgeous white Burgundy. Has a bit of everything you expect in a full-throttle Meursault: chalky stone, mineral, lots of ripe fruit held back by great acidity. Long finish. Needs time.
