A refined wine, well appreciated in the whole world. A beautiful golden colour and a great aromatic palette: honey, linden flower ("tilleul"), hazelnut butter, sometimes even chamomile or hawthorn. On the palate, a silky roundness. Long on the aftertaste, with flavours of yellow plum and gingerbread.


Notes of hazelnut, pear, white peach and subtle floral aromas lead to generous, rich and attractively fleshy flavors that possess a seductive texture due to the ample amounts of dry extract that render the otherwise moderately firm acidity impeccably well-balanced. This delicious effort is very Meursault in basic character and is worth considering.

Score: 89. —Allen Meadows, February 2011.

Wine Enthusiast

A big, rich, yet brooding '09 red, with a hint of animal to the plum, cherry, currant and spice flavors that butt up against the massive, though not overly obtrusive, tannins. Compact now. Best from 2015 through 2032. 70 cases imported

Score: 89. —Roger Voss, April 01, 2012.

Wine Spectator

This broad white features apple, pineapple and butterscotch flavors, accented by clove and nutmeg notes. Richly textured, with an open frame and moderate length. Drink now through 2015.

Score: 88. —Bruce Sanderson, February 29, 2012.

Wine Advocate

The 2009 Meursault shows attractive fleshiness and an open, accessible personality. Yellow stone fruits, citrus, flowers and spices are nicely layered into the creamy, expressive finish. This shows lovely persistence and roundness in a straightforward style best suited to near-term drinking. Anticipated maturity: 2012+.

Score: 88. —Antonio Galloni, September 2011.
