A story is told in the glass. Has it all. Depth of fruit with peach, citrus and a hint of green apple skins. Wonderful mineral, saline and stones. Acidity-driven finish refreshes and invites you back for more.

2012 vintage. The old vines trick your pallet into thinking its chassagne until the minerality settles in and brings the classic Meursault backbone. Long finish. Drinks well above village level!

Quite fine for a Meursault. Citrus and peach fruit. Very elegant in its approach. Good balance here and very drinkable.

White mushroom, apple skinf, underripe pineapple, melons. Round and generous without being too fatty. Back palate showing great acidity and finish.
