The 2014 Meursault Vieilles Vignes has a rather conservative nose, tightly coiled, but it is nicely integrated with the 25% new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine acidity, not complex though with a pleasant, light and slightly peppery finish. It was just rather outplayed by the Meursault Tessons on my visit, though hopefully it will offer more complexity after bottling.

Very mild reduction doesn't completely mask the citrus, floral and white-fleshed fruit aromas. There is fine intensity to the well-detailed and impressively concentrated middle weight flavors that evidence plenty of stone influence on the attractively lingering and balanced finish where a hint of bitter lemon arises. This is a powerful, indeed even old school Meursault villages that is going to need at least a few years of bottle age. Recommended provided that you have the patience to wait.
