Meursault should be a party in a bottle, and this one goes all night long... Opens with an abundance of fruit which takes precedence over the underlying minerality. Complex aromatics highlighted by bright tones of lemon peel, lightly toasted hazelnuts, a wisp of herbs and honey. This all shows in a perfectly balanced, medium-bodied wine with stunning tension. Will show exceptionally well with foods like a classic Maine lobster roll, bay scallops, or coq a vin.

Wine Enthusiast

Shy, lemony brightness escapes the closed nose on this wine. The palate brings serene concentration on a lemony, textured palate that speaks of yeast and concentration. Mellow and rounded but at the same time subdued, it's an understated, elegant wine.
