    September 1, 2017 - PnP & slow ox prior to dinner. Decant might not be a bad idea here too. Served in Riedel Montrachet glasses. Medium gold color. Nice and fresh on the nose and palate both. Minerally citrusy aromas. Dense limestone minerality is the centerpiece flavor buttressed by taut acidity. Some citrusy side notes. Fairly non existent tropical or stone fruit traits unlike many other Meursault. Today what this lacks in finesse and range is made up for with impressive grand cru level intensity, concentration and a boatload of mineral. A bit dryer than most chardonnays / white Burgs. Great with halibut tonight. 13.5% alc. Not a steal at $80 but surely a solid value. Needs a couple more years to mellow a little and show more range but it already taste and feels like grand cru in the making.

    April 23, 2017 - Pale gold. Scents of lemons and limes, pears, pineapples and rocky minerals. In the mouth, razor sharp acidity. Citric and bone dry, with minerals and wet river boulder. Hints of salinity. Precise and focussed. Good fruit volume and depth. Long tart finish. Optimally, I'd cellar for another 3-4 years, to see if it developed additional complexity.

    March 1, 2016 - My fault for opening this during a noisy party with kids running around - and then only after finishing a champagne with sushi, then a super Tuscan with prime rib, but a friend asked me to open another white. Immediately upon opening, nose seemed (in comparison to the previous wines) miserly and delicate, and the palate seemed smooth and the finish was complex and long which was the only thing that presented the premier cru quality I expected. Saving the last third of the bottle for the next day, the Meursault Perrieres quality showed through, but it was about finesse and length and delicacy. Not a blockbuster style, very restrained.
