A blend of many parcels, this wine brings out the character of Meursault, poised between a crisp, mineral style and something much richer. Wood aging has brought out the riper side of the wine, emphasizing apricots as much as citrus. Drink this sumptuous wine from 2020.

Vibrant and toasty, with smoke, vanilla and clove notes augmented by peach, apple and lemon flavors, backed by a lively structure that leaves a clean, tangy aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2028.

(from 9 different lieux-dits). There is enough post-bottling sulfur to render the aromatic profile tough to read today. Otherwise there is exceptionally good richness to the very generously proportioned medium weight flavors that possess a highly seductive mouth feel while the saliva-inducing, clean and notably dry finish is shaped by citrus-tinged acidity. This is a very fine Meursault villages and also worth considering
