Meursault is great, how could it not be with this vintage to which all the superlatives apply. Sophisticated pastry, pear and icing sugar, pink biscuit, cinnamon and Dulce de Leche, vanilla, coffee eclair and Puits d’Amour, Catalan cream then some herbs, chervil and coriander, sweet almond oil, hazelnut, cashew nut and peanut butter. Meaty palate, both a dense and supple consistency, hazelnut, Williams pear and Boskoop apple, intense finish with a monster fruit that will stick to you like glue, problem? Perhaps, the minerality may be difficult to identify because of the excessive fruit. A finish that keeps you wanting more, an unprecedented level of persistence for a village with 25 years of professional tasting. Tasted once more an hour later when a little cooler (François offers most of his wine tastings at a temperature around 16°), the “village” is more mineral with herbs, also typical of this vintage, even more energetic, if it were possible, the finish is even more precise.
