Pale lemon yellow, attractive fresh bouquet, some elegance, a feel of the hillside. A lovely citrus incision through the middle of the white flesh, plenty to get your teeth into here. Tasted: November 2021
A slightly cooler if similar mix adds a distinct petrol note. The sleek, intense and more obvious mineral-suffused medium weight flavors deliver the same fine length on the balanced and citrusy finale. Note that this lovely effort is sufficiently tightly wound to need at least a few years of patience and it should reward up to a decade. *Outstanding
The 2020 Meursault Narvaux (Domaine Louis Jadot) is excellent, offering up aromas of pear, orange oil, freshly baked bread and almonds. Medium to full-bodied, layered and textural, it's rich and concentrated, with racy acids and a long, saline finish. This is a cuvée that goes from strength to strength.
This lieu-dit Meursault is coming together nicely in the bottle. Bright in colour with a cool, refined nose of lemon peel and curd, together with a creamy vanilla bean note and cool, stony background note. The palate has lively, saline acidity that cuts through the palate giving it a lithe, nimble texture. The fruit remains intense, mixing more citrus with white flowers and cashew butter. This is an elegant but not lightweight style, it is refined and opens up beautifully in the glass with air. Subtle creaminess adds complexity and texture on the long finish. Delicious to drink now or over the coming 5+ years.
Pale lemon colour. Lemon curd, lemon sherbet and fine baking spices on the nose. This is open and showing well already. The palate follows in the same vein, with generous fruit and a creamy texture. There is a wonderful, refreshing line of acidity that adds real zip and a moreish edge. Finely balanced with a long finish of pure stone fruit. It should offer excellent drinking pleasure from an early stage.
