    The Prieur 2006 Meursault Clos de Mazeray is dominated by fresh lime, pineapple, and crushed stone, along with lanolin and vanilla from the barrel. A lees-imbued sense of richness contrasts with slightly detached acidity, and this well-concentrated wine will have to reconcile its elements in bottle.

    Very ripe aromas of apricot and earth. Smooth and sweet but a bit lacking in definition; began a bit blurry with alcohol but showed pineapple and mineral notes with air. Finishes with good length.
