Tasting Notes

Pure but restrained aromas of fresh peach, apricot and brown spices, plus an exotic whiff of dried fruits. Juicy and firm but not hard; less giving than the Puligny-Montrachet but finishes with good rising length. Will this wine's faint phenolic edge integrate with time? There was a lot of frost on the lower section of the vineyard, which features older vines, said Marc Bachelet.

Score: 88

The 2016 Meursault Clos du Cromin is usually a blend of young vines planted in 1998 with 90-year-old vines, though this year the latter was completely frosted. Nevertheless, it has a satisfying bouquet of dried honey, almond and hazelnut, gaining intensity all the time in the glass. The palate is fresh on the entry with a fine bead of acidity, though it is not a complex or "ambitious" Meursault. In that sense, it knows its place and retains freshness and typicity without striving for complexity or razor-sharp delineation. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

Score: 87 - 89
