Description

I didn’t know what to expect of his Meursault wines, but MAN! this villages is crazy good!…..from two parcels: 1/3 from Aux Moulin Landin, and 2/3 from les Clous, from vines pushing up on 45 years old. A great example of precise elegance over any one element standing out, this is a gorgeously precise and complex wine balancing its sense of Meursault typical richness with a seamless sense of supportive tension. This is classical in its profile and then some, and will age wonderfully on its sense of harmony. A little * awarded here. It is rare to find an entry level Meursault villages with so much class and character!!
“It is not just the Auxey blanc cuvĂ©es chez Lafouge that have excellent cut and grip on 2017, as this Meursault villages shows off beautiful structural tension. The nose is bright and classic, jumping from the glass in a mix of pear, passion fruit, hazelnut, chalky soil tones, citrus zest and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and racy, with a superb core for a villages bottling, lovely focus and grip and a long, bouncy and nicely tensile finish. Fine juice. 2020-2045. 91.” John Gilman for the 2017, NOT THE 2018 OFFERED HERE
