Incredible example of villages-level Meursault. Maybe the best I've had, ever. Rich, complex, palate coating, but not overdone, light on its feet and just delicious with great acidity that refreshes the palate with every sip. Classic Meursault nuttiness, rich, honeyed flavors, and a really long finish. I had modest expectations and was really overly impressed at $65. Will buy again if I can find it.
Nose is clean of medium intensity (or even medium +), and youthful. Primary aromas are of fruit with very little oak showing through.
The wine is dry with medium + acidity (especially for Chardonnay, and Meursault this is very bright). Alcohol is medium, or even medium -. Certainly the acidity over rides it. The body of the wine is light, but again this could be the acidity altering my perception. To me the flavors and thier intensity of very pronouced with striking minerality all across the palate. It doesn't show like a Chablis because the fruit is a bit too rich, but the beautiful combination of acidity and minerality is too difficult to ignore. The finish is exceptionally long and lingering.
Quality over is outstanding -- the length, concentration and complexity are all quite high without achieving a high alcoholl load. For many drinkers I believe the acidity would seem out of balance, but that is not the case for me. It can be drunk know but knowing Ente (and I think his wines have only become better), it will take three years at least to develop secondary characteristics, and last five more if not seven more beyond.
