Pale lemon with aromas of citrus and stone fruits, aged for 14 months in French oak, 20% new. On the palate apple and lemon flavors with hints of sweet spice. Long rich finish, well balanced with lively acidity ending with minerality. Very Nice! Tasting Sample. — 5 days ago
Nose has bright red cherry, ripe tart cherry, tree bark/vine stems, ripe plum, semi-moist soil, moist chalk and mashed black cherry.
Palate has over-ripe cherry, dried tart cherry, dried cranberry, smoked anise, moss, dried blackberry, bright acidity, beautifully earthy textures and slightly drying finish. Delicious.
An interesting tasting experience, Meursault is only planted to about 4-5% Pinot Noir, so finding one is a challenge to say the least.
Decanted 3 hours, still needs more time in bottle and decanter. I'd love to see this in 5-6 years, unfortunately our only bottle.

Deep but bright gold. Rustic nose of dried quince and birch. Palate (medium full bodied) echoes with firm acidity plus plantain and a touch of white pepper. Finish is long and earthy. My favorite appellation for Chardonnay doesn’t disappoint a decade on. Pair with any classic “white wine” dishes, high end or more pedestrian fare. This will satisfy for another 5-10 years. — 7 days ago
Rookie mistake of thinking this was a bottle of white when I ordered it so only found out after I opened it that it was a red.... it was a Fred bottle though. Concentrated red fruit and berries galore. Smooth silky tannins which provide great texture and keep you coming back for another sip. — 7 days ago
This 2015 Meursault Lormeau from Domaine Fabien Coche is my spring star, really enjoyed the wine, so balanced, smooth and delicious.
A lovely blend of summer stone fruit, citrus, mineral and a hint of butter, medium to full velvet smooth body, with delicious acidity and a lovely finish that is both fruity and fresh.
A buy again wine no doubt.
My score 90, drink to 2022

Now we’re talking. First opened the ‘12 for my quarantine birthday wine dinner with Maine lobster and Maryland crab. Sadly it was in premox hell. The ‘10 on the other hand was open for business. In its prime drinking window. Minerals, oyster shells, a touch of wood, incredibly balanced and in its prime. Had the ‘14 Mouchere in the dugout but thankfully didn’t need to pull it. Is there a better duet than east coast shellfish and Burgundy???? A sequestered birthday dinner I will never forget.... — 11 days ago
