2010 Meursault

A blend from 3 plots across Meursault, this is a well-balanced and typical Chardonnay from that area — dry and mellow, but also ample, classy, and fruity. And the vintage can’t be beat! Pierre Morey says “2010 is one of the great all-time vintages for whites”, and his in particular. Quotation taken from Antonio Galloni, #202, Aug 2012.

  • A perfumed nose suggests gardenias and other white flowers, sweet spice, earth, red apples, and cider. Medium body with tart acidity. Flavors of baked apple and apple peel predominate, but also offers chalky minerality, vegetation, and nutty, almond notes. Rich and complex, but pierced by refreshing acidity. Sweet, ripe fruit and a long, velvety finish make this appealing now—but it would be a shame to drink it so young. Likely to start really opening up in 2016–2017.

    Food pairing: Serve with chicken

  • Classic Meursault. Typical scents of oak, honey, and citrus, but with spice and musky scents. Initially closed, but becomes gradually more expressive with time in the glass, developing floral notes. A little reserved on the palate, too, but clearly of good breeding and with an underlying core of solid fruit and acidity that promise future development (although delicious even now). Intriguing bitter notes on the finish suggest mangoes. The sort of wine you want to sample from a case every couple of years; the sort of wine you wish you’d bought more of by the time you’ve finished the case.

    Food pairing: Lobster, grilled fish, roasted squash with butter
