"Classic Meursault on the nose with hints of orange, some floral notes and oak in evidence. The palate has good purity of flavour and enough acidity but the palate is a little heavier than expected. A weighty Meursault Narvaux – this lacks a little of the ‘nervosité’ and elegance anticipated. Still a nice example but needs a bit more refinement. Drinking Window 2020 - 2023"
