Meursault like, in the Antoine Jobard mould. Butter cream, white flowers, green apple, lime, preserved lemon, yellow peach and menthol. Rich, full bodied and tightly wound, beautifully textured and tense. There’s some cherry too and perfectly judged oak. Despite the immense proportions, there is balance and poise, a light footedness that is remarkable. Waters Wine Co.
There’s real direction and clarity to this white with sliced dried apples, crushed stones and minerals on the nose, as well as hints of biscuit and praline. Some honeysuckle and lemon-grass undertones, too. It’s full-bodied, yet very tight and lively with a line of fresh acidity running through the palate, providing energy and depth. From the owner of Chacra and Burgundy’s Jean-Marc Roulot. Drinkable now, but much better in three to four years. Try after 2023. 97 points – James Suckling.com
