- Tasting Notes
As is usually the case this is less aromatically refined but more complex and more expressive with its full-on nose of dried peach, apricot, pear, floral and spice hints. There is fine concentration to the intense and powerful medium-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract before concluding in palate coating, clean, dry and beautifully balanced finish. This is a big but harmonious effort that should amply reward extended cellaring.

The 2012 Meursault 1er Cru Goutte d’Or, which Patrick described as his most “athletic” cru, demonstrates a tightly-wound bouquet with pithy fruit, nectarine and Cornice pear, grilled almond and dandelion coming through later. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, lightly spiced fruit and touches of white pepper furnishing the linear finish. Very fine, though I would like just a little more persistency. Drink 2018-2028.
