Initial impressions of green apple, citrus, wet stone and mineral. Same on the palate. Still quite restrained from this excellent white burgundy vintage of 8 years ago. Quite lean for a Premier Cru Meursault and leaner than most good Australian Chardonnays The oak is clearly dialled back to match the power of the fruit in this cooler vintage. A touch of salinity at the finish.

Good, lean mainly.
Very almondy, nearly like a north eastern Italian white

Aromas of crisp stone fruits with citrus notes, complex. On the palate apple and citrus flavors, lively with honey oak and spice. Well balanced, lingering finish ending with mineral tones. Nice!

Really interesting Chardonnay. Complex flinty nose with white chalk, lemon dust and warm caramel. Mineral driven palate with modest caramel apple and Meyer lemon notes. Dense mouthfeel. Really nice. Not too oaky or fruity. Even better in a couple of years.

This is an interesting Chardonnay. It is neither too fruity nor is it too oaky. Perhaps that is why I'm at a loss. Nothing is standing out. It is smooth with a pleasant finish, but for me, honestly unmemorable. I have had much better (and much worse) Meursault.
