Buttery, nutty and very refined nose. Loads of elegant minerality. Rocks on rocks upon rocks. Very pure and very clean. Palate is rich and opulent with terrific concentration and freshness. Juicy and so pure. Wonderful clean winemaking. Terrific acidity and almost too much minerality but the rich buttery fruit provides a nice contrast. Long winding finish. A baby but delicious today.

Elegant and very restrained nose. Butter, smell the 15 sunshine, iodine, hazelnut, very mineral. Palate is excellent and one of the best 15’s. Ripe, juicy and wonderfully textured with deep penetrating minerality and staggering purity. Excellent.

Electric richness. Sick nose. Buttery and rich but with big minerals. Buttery, earthy and super complex. Give this 30 minutes. Palate is rich, deep and complex. Textured and electric at the same time with superb balance and freshness. Incredible length.

Been a while. Big, ripe and evocative nose. Buttery, mineral, wet earth. Nuts. Gorgeous. Even white flowers. Very subtle. Very nuanced. Rich, ripe, so deep and complex. Florent is the man. So good. Amazingly deep. Long. Precise yet opulent.

Dense and deliciously fruited. Perfect balance with a lovely kiss of fresh acid. Certainly a case in point that vintagism is silly. Delicious dense fruit. Lovely sweet minerality.

Nose is seashells and freshly churned butter some iodine.

-as this opens its about as great as village meursault can be. A framing hint of tropicality

Brioche, acacia, hazelnut and just a touch of chervil. Lifted, tense and long. Classic, understated Meursault in every aspect. #garaudet #meursault #chardonnay

Steely, with a nose that hints lemon, green grassy notes, and a nutty quality. One sip demands the next. Could drink this all night ( but I'll have to slow down!). Delicious. Thanks, Tom!

Great and classic fragrance -- juicy pear, lemon-soaked Burgundian earth, hazelnut. Very linear and persistent. Excellent balance. The earth, minerals, and nuttiness are very present in the front half of the palate. Beautiful acids make the lingering finish lip-smacking. Really nicely done. Premier Cru quality.

Delicious. After a day on the mountain and PA turnpike closures getting home (uggh) this was the correct elixir. All in harmony. Quite nice

Down the middle Mearsault, if you love Chardonnay you need to know the expression of this village. Marine like sea air with wafts of salty sea water, seaside brush, sand and crushed shells. A wilder more feminine version of Chardonnay, notes of citrus, sometines green cooking herbs, and pear notes at times are common. This wine shows that typicity well and is worth seeking out.
