- Tasting Notes
A cool and appealingly fresh nose is comprised by notes of citrus, apple and a hint of pear along with nuances of hazelnut and grilled almonds. There is a lovely texture to the impressively intense and delineated medium weight flavors that are more evidently mineral-driven on the linear, focused and sneaky long finish. In contrast to some of the wines in the range this is going to require a few years of cellar time to further flesh out as it’s borderline lean today.

The 2014 Meursault les Cras has a more Puligny-like bouquet with limestone and flinty notes infusing the citrus fruit — real sophistication, nudging premier cru quality. It takes some aeration to really express itself, however, so afford it some bottle age and decanting. The palate is finely balanced with a keen thread of acidity and it boasts a very composed, tensile finish that demonstrates impressive persistence. This has great potential.
