Meursault, Côte De Beaune

Michel Rebourgeon

Meursault Chardonnay 2018

Nose has lemon zest, lemon slice, vanilla bean, crushing of flint, white wood smoke, room temperature butter, salt box and waxy yellow apple.

Palate has under-ripe pineapple, honeycomb, warm green apple, salty warm lemon, pulverized flint; concentration is amazing, finish is minutes.

Wow, Meursault I already ❤️ thee, but this is next level.

Decanted +3H, then double decanted for service tonight.

@Severn Goodwin wine is sick. Electric and so complex.

Golden yellow color, from a very poor stoney soil vineyard. Lemon and biscuits on the nose. It has very good balance between roundness and precision accompanied by sizzling acidity. — 6 days ago

Stunning nose of butter, minerals, green apple, spice and florals. Salty as well. Just gorgeous. So so expressive. Palate is super. Lemony and fresh with terrific acidity and super pure. Long finish. This is no way a 15 if you served this to me blind. Even needs air. Maybe a 9.5? — 7 days ago

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Meursault-Goutte d'Or 1er Cru Chardonnay 2011

Still young, needs time to open up and it does open, full, rich and large on the palate, great length. Delivered with time in the glass.

Très beau après du temps dans le verre, riche, plein, large, profond, longue finale. 92-93

Nose is youthful. Mineral, waxey, lemony, rich, nutty, tree bark. Cannot believe how youthful. Nose has huge tight focus and clarity. Floral. Hint of creaminess. Wow. Complex and youthful with incredible depth snd minerality. Superb. Elegant. Sappy. — 15 days ago

Domaine Henri Boillot

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2019

Nose has fresh lemon slice, cut green & yellow apples, Italian bread, vanilla cremé and wet slate.

Palate has fresh pineapple, cold yellow apple, white flowers, sandstone and mild vanilla notes. Great acidity (as expected in the most youthful of stages, current vintage) with some drying, chalky aspects.

Decanted 90m. Another great Boillot Bourgogne Blanc to stock the cellar with for enjoyment 2023-29.

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our Conductors Andris Nelsons and John Williams will be leading a very engaging program of Jessie MONTGOMERY (Starburst), John WILLIAMS (Violin Concerto No. 2, world premiere featuring Anne-Sophie Mutter!), COPLAND (Quiet City) and STRAVINSKY (Suite from The Firebird, 1919 version). We're getting the luxury of enjoying Mr. Williams two nights in a row...what a great weekend of Contemporary music!

@Sharon B Yes, but we got shut down last summer because of the pandemic. So I had more time for grilling, it worked out.

Domaine Roulot

Les Tessons Clos de Mon Plaisir Meursault Chardonnay 2009

Tilts more toward vintage than producer.
A ripe nose of peach, pears and flowers . In the mouth a wine that most producers would be very happy to produce but for Roulot this was a little more tropical fruit than one would expect. Fruit with weight but not flabby , very balanced with acid one level down . Nice finish with no alcohol heat.

Les Tillets Meursault Chardonnay 2018

Superb nose, white fruit, some butter, classic and the palate follows suit with great texture, just a touch of sourness on the finish.

Superbe nez, fruits blancs, beurre, à peine miellé, la bouche est sur le même registre, assez droite mais avec une belle texture, seule note discordante une légère amertume un peu trop prononcée en finale. 90-91
