Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Deep gold. Savour and minerals. Plus lots of richness underneath. Really golden ' almost old-style Meursault ('buttery') but with lots of green life. Very tight on the end.Author: Jancis Robinson
Rating: 90Bright yellow. A distinct step up in complexity and depth from the Roche de Bellene village Meursault, with its peach and hazelnut aromas complicated by spicy, vanillin oak and a floral element. Broad, easygoing and sweet, offering oily stone fruit and spice flavors and considerable early appeal. Has just enough acidity to maintain its balance. Finishes ripe and persistent. It's hard to imagine that this will ever shut down in the bottle, but I would not want to lose this wine in the cellar. - Stephen Tanzer
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
