Sipping Fine Wine

The vineyard seemed to have escaped the worst of the 2012 hail. A nice heavy weight Burgundian Chardonnay with complex aromas of stone fruits and spice. On the palate Apple, peach flavors with citrus and vanilla spice, with a slight creamy texture. About 10% of the wine sits on oak adding roundness and mouthfeel to the wine. The wine has good length and ends sleek with mineral tones. The wine is great now but can stand up to some age. Pricey but splurge on that special occasion.

What a great expression of Meursault. Delicious and balanced fruit and that unique " nut-like" undertone that makes Meursault so, so... Meursault!

Not overly complex but great acid with nice fruit, structure. Mineral and delicious.
