Aromas of lemon oil, minerals, hazelnuts and some toasty oak notes. Very Meursault with a roundness in the mouth, but with good acidity. Citrus and some yellow stone fruit on the palate with good concentration for a villages wine. Good length and a wonderful showing for a Meursault village. At a great place right now and should be able to hold for a few more years if it is in the right conditions. This and some other Entes we tasted were stored impeccably, yet 2 bottles of the 2000 Meursault were premoxed.
Actually enjoyed this quite a bit. It seemed best to me on the first day, when the minerality was more cut and stood out. Day two it seemed a bit more fat and out of place. A bit of wood--not too much imo. Bright acid, tangerine, and hazelnut.
Medium yellow-gold color. Aromas of lemon, butterscotch, and pineapple. On the palate, this shows lemon, butterscotch, hazelnut oil, and pineapple. The iodine and mineral notes from the last bottle are not present on this showing and this is seemingly more advanced. Some signs of seepage under the capsule may be the culprit. In any event, a fine enough sip. Drink.
Medium yellow-gold color. Aromas of mineral, flowers, quince, pineapple, and lemon. On the palate, an iodine/mineral persistence carries throughout with lemon, tangerine, pineapple, quince, and yellow flowers. Finish is medium-short. Refreshing and very easy to drink. May develop further, but hard to argue holding this, as it is so good now and premox is always lurking.
Deep golden color. Aromas of lemon curd, candied lemon, ginger, and flowers. On the palate, this initially shows a very dense, sweet, candied lemon and ginger essence. It later evolves in the glass to show butterscotch and orange with a hint of iodine in the backgroun. Would likely fool Kistler fans into thinking that it was new world or is the type of white Burgundy that Parker is citing when he says that Kistler is Burgundian. Rich, ripe, delicious. Drink now.
Focus on Burgundy (Mostly) - Blind Tasting (My home - Chicago IL): Wine tasting. Bright citrus on nose with some good floral support. Lemon and lemon zest on palate with a good deal of minerality, perhaps a bit too much oak prominent today. Good fruit coming out on finish, with the concentration to last. Hold to 2008 or 2009 before trying again, which is quite interesting for a Villages level wine.
This is my first experience with this producer and I was impressed. Complex nose of earth, spices and clean fruit. Great acidity and well-integrated oak (it's there, but you need to look for it). Good concentration and finish. Still very young and will benefit from 8-10 years of cellaring. Very good, especially for a village wine.
