-  * **Meursault–Perrières** (May 2016, May 2019):  ​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–Perrières** (May 2016, May 2019, Nov. 2019):  ​btls not oxidized.

Well–judged acidity on the palate. 2 btls purchased at retail in Napa (Apr. 2011) & 1 btl in Hong Kong (Dec. 2011).

-  * **Meursault–Charmes** (Jun. 2019 – ): 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–Charmes** (Jun. 2019 – ): btls not oxidized.

-  * **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 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.

 +  * **Meursault–Perrières** (Nov. 2019 – ): 1 btl not oxidized. Classic Lafon in the nose & on the palate, but still youthful & less than fully expressive despite decanting. Color is now gold. From 3 btls purchased at retail in Hong Kong in Feb. 2015. [Rayner Cheung]
