"At first sight, the wine is a perfect illustration of its place name. It is worthy of the wonderful Meursault whose colour is golden without being yellow. The nose, concentrated and elegant, full without being heady, evokes aromas of almond, warm bread just taken out of the oven, hot croissant, then, fine spice and finally grilled dried fruit. The flavours are at the same refined level as the aromas. The body is round without being heavy; the acidity is well integrated and is never biting. The texture feels like silk without the alcohol ever being dominant. The wine develops on the palate and opens up fully until the very long aftertaste brings back some of the precious aromas felt in the bouquet: almond paste and hot brioche".

The 2018 Meursault Village comes from five separate climats and is fermented in 18–20% new oak. It has quite a steely bouquet, reserved at first and opening reluctantly with aeration to reveal strong gunflint aromas. The palate is well balanced with tempting pineapple and white peach notes drawing you in. Perhaps a little Chassagne-like in terms of weight, and quite persistent on the mint-tinged finish. Very fine, but I bet you drink it too early.
