    "A stunning Meursault, taut and focused, with aromas and flavors of lemon, apple, white flowers and mineral, shaded by oak spice. Harmonious, with fine length and an impressive aftertaste of citrus, mineral and spice. Best from 2015 through 2024."

    A deft touch of wood frames the cool and ultra-elegant nose of green apple, acacia blossom, pear and mineral reduction. There is superb intensity to the detailed and tension-filled middle weight flavors that seem to be extracted directly from liquid rock, all wrapped in a superbly persistent and very complex finish.
