This glows in all the senses, both the colour and the concentration of fruit on the nose. More generous than the regular, seemingly softer, but pre racking, and exceptionally long. Not always the case, but a definite preference here this year.

The proportion of new wood is fairly important, but not terribly apparent, as the initial impression is lemony citrus fruit, with a pronounced mineral/saline cast. On the palate, however, it shows the Meursault origin, with a bigger feel and a long, lovely richness that lingers satisfyingly. (Drink between 2024-2039)

The palate is quite lush and honeyed on the entry, though there is sufficient countervailing acidity and a delicate touch of spice toward the finish. Very fine. -- Neal Martin
