Residual SO2 is sufficient to dominate the nose today. Marvelously energetic and intensely mineral-driven flavors also possess excellent cut that characterizes the bitter lemon and saline-inflected finish that delivers seriously fine length. This chiseled effort is almost Chablis-like and will require at least a few years of bottle age first. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*
Lean and tight, with oak spice wrapped around a core of lemon, apple and stone flavors. Firms up in the end, yet shows intensity and promise of things to come. (BS)
Pale yellow. Aromas of yellow peach, apple and spicy, vanillin oak. Creamier in the middle palate than a barrel sample I tried last year shortly after the malo, but with its stone fruit sweetness nicely leavened by citrus and mineral notes. A very rich, tactile, smooth 2016 with the balance to offer early appeal and the stuffing for mid-term aging. The firm finish displays excellent savory length. (ST)
The 2016 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières comes from two parcels, one on the slope and the other at higher altitude. It has a tightly wound bouquet with hints of mint and licorice lurking in the background. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, taut and linear, not a flamboyant Genevrières and just needing to manifest more character on the finish. Give this two or three years in bottle before opening. (NM)
Ripe toffee-apple notes on the nose and rich, fleshy texture on the palate. Loads of core fruit driving the persistence. Full of potential for future complexity, and counters its fullness with excellent acidic bite on the finish. 17.5/20 points (RH)
