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 – Feb. 2020): 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 – ): 2 btls not oxidized. Classic Lafon in the nose & on the palate with outstanding vinosity. A btl opened in Nov. 2019 was still youthful & less than fully expressive despite decanting. Another btl opened in May 2020 was showing significantly better after 30 mins in the glass. The lingering perfume in the carafe used to decant it was irresistible. Color is now yellow gold, but there'​s no sign of oxidation. From 3 btls purchased at retail in Hong Kong in Feb. 2015.

   * **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)   * **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)
