- Tasting Notes
Like the La Romanee and Vaudesir this too manifests a hint of the exotic with its ripe nose of mostly white and yellow orchard fruits that offer tangerine peel and pekoe tea nuances. There is plenty of mouth coating dry extract that really fills out the mid-palate of the full-bodied flavors that possess both outstanding volume and ample power, all wrapped in a textured, balanced and lingering if mildly austere finish. The concentration is impressive and this powerful effort should amply reward extended keeping if desired.

The 2014 Meursault 1er Cru Gouttes d’Or was cropped at 18 hectoliters per hectare and this year comprises of just two one-year-old barrels. It has a light, smoky, slightly earthy bouquet that does not quite reach the level of the Charmes at the moment. The palate is well balanced with orange zest on the entry. There is commendable depth here and it feels powerful, although I prefer the mineral drive of the Les Cras and the Meursault Charmes this year.
