Community Tasting Notes 10

  • William Kelley Likes this wine: (92 points)

    August 13, 2016 - From magnum, the 08 Ente Meursault is still a very crisp, youthful white Burgundy, which is great to see in this era of premature oxidation. Notes of ripe citrus, guava (is this a touch of '08 botrytis?), noble reduction and iodine are followed on the palate by a wine with real '08 cut and energy, a glossy medium-full texture and good persistence. In bottles this may well be singing, as some commentators here contend, but from magnum this wine could even use a few more years to unwind.

    July 15, 2016 - Right in the zone with mildly exotic fruits and a dollop of almond butter. Great shape and volume for its level. There's still a healthy dose of matchstick sulphur to the wine and it has great drive.

    March 28, 2016 - Tasted blind. Flint, notes of cantaloupe and flowers. Kiwi, huuuge acidity and concentration. Tremendously good.

  • Jeremy Holmes wrote:

    January 22, 2016 - Rockmelon, guava and paw paw fruits abound on the nose. The palate is like sucking on a concentrated lemon butter lolly. It is a bit pulpy and seriously chalky with plenty of chewy dry extract to the finish. It is so fresh and has outstanding depth for its level.

  • Ben Christiansen wrote:

    February 9, 2015 - A bit of caramel, just a bit on the nose. But the palate is pure and long. Just opened, and we shall see how it evolves, but I am thinking drink it up before the caramel overwhelms it.
