Screwcap. This year’s cuvée derives from Les Reuchaux and Les Levrons, two adjacent parcels on the Meursault side of the village. Across the parcels, the vines average 40 years of age. This was one of the first vineyards to be picked and yet there’s ample ripeness in this particularly fleshy, and complex example of this terroir. Raised in mostly 300-litre barrels with a touch of new oak, there’s a delicious interplay between the fleshy, creamy, nutty texture and juicy, vibrant freshness.
“Outstanding. Soft wood frames the slightly riper if less complex array of spicy white peach, lemongrass and acacia blossom scents. There is once again fine mid-palate volume to the succulent and refined medium weight flavors that deliver excellent length for a villages level wine on the balanced and attractively dry finale. If I'm being somewhat picky, this could use a bit more depth but I'm confident that more will develop if this is held for a few years first.” 89 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 75
“Fine pale yellow, the nose is very pure and with a fine crystalline delineation. No more Trezin, so this is all from the lower slopes. Just fined, in preparation for bottling. Very elegant and with excellent persistence.” 90 points, Jasper Morris, InsideBurgundy.com
