After a recent visit to the domaine a colleague (Michael) asked the question 'why don't your wines get reviewed, they're great' I really liked Francois response 'the critics used to like richer, fatter styles than I made. Now people want more transparent Meursault and so I started sending samples for review'. Well, the first press is in and it is, unsurprisingly for us, glowing. The Domaine is the largest owner of Gouttes d'Or with 1.3ha in total.
As to the wine, it is quite compact and with serious drive. Aromas of citrus peel, white flowers and nectarine are most obvious. The taught and mineral palate is full of orhcard fruits and the energy is excellent, providing a tension to the bold fruit, you get the feeling this wine just needs a little more time in the bottle and it will uncoil from, when it does it will be a stunner. The snappy, salty finish leaves your tastebudes quivering, it's great. ROSCOE
