 +  * **Meursault–Perrières** (May 2016, May 2019): ​ 2 btls not oxidized. On both occasions, the nose was reluctant & the flavors were reserved. Tightly packed with extract, this wine would benefit from decanting and/or service in a glass with a wide bowl. The btl in 2019 was better on day 2. From a lot of 3 purchased at retail in Hong Kong in Mar. 2015. [Rayner Cheung]

 +  * **Meursault–Charmes** (Sep. 2018 – May 2019): 3 btls not oxidized. Honeysuckle & orchard fruits in the nose. Well–judged acidity on the palate. 2 btls purchased at retail in Napa (Apr. 2011) & 1 btl in Hong Kong (Dec. 2011). [Rayner Cheung]
 +  * **Meursault–Charmes** (Jun. 2019 – ): 2 btls not oxidized. Magnificent wine still some way from full maturity. Pale gold color. Ripe pear & peach in the nose with a hint of caramel. Plenty of grip on the palate, with sweet orchard fruit flavors followed by steely minerality in the finish. From a lot of 5 purchased from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer in Aug. 2015. [Rayner Cheung]
   * **Meursault Perrieres** (24 Mar 2011): I don't normally post about wines less than 6 years old, but this wine was notably advanced -- it tasted like a 7 or 8 year old wine. It was fabulous, but scary. Complete cork seal failure? I hope so, as I own a lot of this one [Don Cornwell]   * **Meursault Perrieres** (24 Mar 2011): I don't normally post about wines less than 6 years old, but this wine was notably advanced -- it tasted like a 7 or 8 year old wine.

   * **Meursault Genevrieres** (July 2014): After two brilliant bottles earlier this year from the same case (both young, taut, mineral driven and racy), a third bottle was seriously premoxed.   * **Meursault Genevrieres** (July 2014): After two brilliant bottles earlier this year from the same case (both young, taut, mineral driven and racy), a third bottle was seriously premoxed.

   * **Montrachet** (May 2015): Not oxidized but fully developed. Colour was troubling...deepish gold but not dull. Lots of honey on the nose and palate but a ripping acidic core. A very full bodied, big boy wine in the DRC Montrachet. Some might have taken a different view and found it a bit poxed but I didn't find any hints of tiring. Still, if you have it, you better drink it. [Ken Lamb]   * **Montrachet** (May 2015): Not oxidized but fully developed. Colour was troubling...deepish gold but not dull.

 +  * **Meursault Perrieres** (March 2019) Coravin. ​ Alarming pale gold.  Actually very drinkable, impressive, but very advanced, tastes more like 1998 than 2008, big, rich, acidity but very mature (Adrian Latimer)
