Meursault 1er Cru Charmes, 2012, Domaine Roulot
Note: 70+ year old vines
This isn't quite as elegant but it is even more complex with its expressive nose of really lovely purity that features cool floral, pear and green apple aromas trimmed in just enough wood to notice.
The super intense and restrained beautifully precise middle weight flavors brim with an underlying minerality that adds lift to the seductively textured finale that displays outstanding persistence.
Despite all of the refinement this remains a powerful and concentrated wine that possesses almost painful intensity and this should age effortlessly for years to come.
