We had this In Paris this past summer and it was fantastic. Couldn't wait to find a bottle in the US. It was everything we remembered - apricots, pears, perfect minerality, great mouth feel. One of my fav Meursaults ever.
Burgundy WIMPS, Complet table (La Trompette, London): Nicely pale, no more than pale straw. Very fragrant in a light and almost ethereal sense; scented talc almost. Fresh with a pineappley tropical fruit attack and then lots of weight and richness through the long finish. Retains a sense of elegance. Lots of mineral grip and showing a nice line. Quite uncharacteristically elegant and fresh. ****
This is a go-to wine for me in many vintages (my first one was the '92) and while I won't argue qpr, it always agrees with my palate. This one balances medium size with fullness and freshness all at once. Primary notes of peach, apricot, apple with a trace of vanilla and butterscotch. My favorite of the previous decade along with the 05.
