   * **Meursault Perrieres**(Nov 2012) not oxidized, just fabulous [Ville Viinikka]   * **Meursault Perrieres**(Nov 2012) not oxidized, just fabulous [Ville Viinikka]
   * **Meursault–Perrières** (Jun. 2017 – Jul. 2018): 3 btls not oxidized, of which 2 were absolutely stunning (Mar. & Jul. 2018) & the other somewhat advanced (Jun. 2017). Orange blossom, a hint of honey, wheat, & mineral notes in the nose. Much richer & sweeter on the palate than the Charmes. The advanced btl was a little short on acidity, making it almost a '​meditation'​ wine. From a lot of 3 purchased in Jul. 2015 from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer.

   * **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 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–Perrières** (Nov. 2019 – ): 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.

 +  * **Meursault–Perrières** (Nov. 2020 – ): 3 btls not oxidized. Drinking beautifully (as above) with no trace of sur–maturité. From a lot of 6 purchased from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer in Apr. 2015. [Rayner Cheung]
