Lovely Mersault - nose is relatively restrained for Mersault, but as it opens in the glass you get the richness - preserved lemon, baked apple, nectarine, hints of honey and pistachio, a little butter and some spice. Palate starts with a blast of citrus and yellow fruits and then melows into some nuttiness and minerality, while finishing with a nice caramel note. Acidity and fruit very much in balance. Drinking perfectly now.
Clear, fairly dark yellow, little variation to the rim. Clean nose apple, citrus, hazelnut nose. Rich and full palate, buttery, citrus, quite sweet, lacks an acid backbone. Long finish. Lacks some finesse to make this a really excellent Meursault, but still very good. Probably time to drink up.
PNP. color dark straw. nose leads with minerality then follows with nutty creamy chardonnay fruit, bordering on oxidized. swishing shows good acid and some delicate tannin, with med finish. sipping consistent with nose. assuming that this bottle is representative, i think that this is in the early stages of decline, and unless you like your white burg totally secondary would drink up. at the very least try one in your stash.
