Quite buttery and slightly ponderous when compared with the Roulot 2007 that was drunk beside it. The wine was big and had slightly nutty overtures before the floral aromas and lively white fruits came through. You can sense the structure and purity of the terroir beneath the oak and butter but the wine still needs some time before it is willing to reveal it. It's a very good White Burg but was bested at this point of time by the Roulot, but in a few years, it will also be as good or even better. 92 for now. 93-94 down the road.
A consistent showing much like 2 months ago (Papies 93). We decanted it for like 20 minutes and we would recommend one decants as it definitely helps develop the wine. Still on the start of its journey and has some puppy fat to lose yet and also assimilate a bit more the oak. But one cannot but love this wine and is just a pretty little number and very well made. There is nothing village about this wine. 92-93 and with a glorious future ahead.
Opened and served. We would suggest some decanting to help the wine develop though. Such a beautiful wine and a pure expression of Meursault albeit still a touch too fatyt to be perfect. One cannot help but forget that this is a "village" (Unless tat person was the one paying and then he/she never forgets). Has definitely evolved since last time we tried it (9/2013 Papies 92) and seems to be ageing nicely with no premox issues. Very good. 93
