The balance with the wood aging is so right that you feel the toast rather than tasting it. As it matures, the wine will deepen in intensity and power, certainly over the next 5–10 years.

The 2007 has a nutty / yeasty character plus a pleasant savoury meatiness on the nose with underlying notes of apricot kernels, lemon curd and crushed stones. The palate has great tension with lots of tightly wound fruit and a very crisp acid line, finishing long and minerally. Approachable now, it could really use another year in bottle to fully open-out. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

A cool airy and almost delicate nose sports notes of pain grillé citrus and dried rose petal plus a wet stone hint that carries over to rich and nicely full yet precise and clearly stonier middle weight flavors that possess a seductive mouth feel and excellent cut intensity and length if not the depth of the best 1ers in the range. This should age nicely as it's very well balanced. Drink: 2013+

From the Puligny border, this Meursault smells like a handful of tiny, chalky stones. It's completely savory, with the cool feel of a cave. The fruit is there in the sense of citrus and orange blossom, but it's held tight... From the Puligny border, this Meursault smells like a handful of tiny, chalky stones. It's completely savory, with the cool feel of a cave. The fruit is there in the sense of citrus and orange blossom, but it's held tight under the influence of oak. There's something honest about the wine that ties it to others from the domaine.

Ice-cream, vanilla, apples, bread, lemon and all that remarkable flint and slate essence of Burgundy. Excellent. (RH)

Restrained aromas of stone fruits clove nuts and minerals. Fruitier and sweeter in the mouth than the Clavoillon with enticing harmonious acidity but less obvious minerality. But this rich round wine has plenty of depth and its mineral component comes up on the oak-spicy finish.

Ripe, verging on apricot in flavor, with hints of nectarine, grapefruit and vanilla, yet minerally. Full-bodied and sinewy, with a juicy finish. Best from 2011 through 2020. – BS
