Reviews and Ratings

Meursault produces some of the most luxuriant of Burgundy’s white wines, and this is certainly no exception. Aromas of toffee and nuts are wonderfully interlaced with fresh and lively fruit tones. The nose also includes a delicate perfumed note that adds intrigue and complexity. Dry, balanced and quite complex on the palate with good fruit, and a long finish. This is an elegant and finessed wine that will reward 4+ years in the cellar, or can be enjoyed tonight. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
