There is a touch of reduction to the otherwise very pretty nose of ripe floral and white peach notes that lead to round, rich and fairly well-concentrated medium-bodied flavors that carry a touch of oak on to the admirably long and complex finish. This is an excellent wine for its level that for my taste is drinking perfectly now. Tasted four times now with consistent notes.
Meursault is the first great white wine area that one stumbles upon on leaving Beaune. Unlike other white dominated appellations in Burgundy, Meursault has no grand cru vineyards. It nonetheless has significant flair and power which make up for this deficiency. Indeed, if tasted blind some of these wines could even surpass other Burgundian grand crus. They are no fainting daisies. This may partially be due to Meursault's lower water table which enables the roots to delve deep in the soil picking up many trace minerals and which further stresses the vines. In addition, the cellars are more profound and cooler, enabling long fermentations, which increase complexity and longevity. Some interesting red wines are also made.
