Joseph Drouhin Meursault 2012

Chardonnay from France - Burgandy
Review Date : 26-Feb-2015
Full, bright, light golden straw-yellow colour, paler on edge. The nose is softly full and voluminous with aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits, gently rounded with a deep core of citrus fruits, flinty lees, nutty oak elements and some lemon curd MLF. The aromatics open smoothly to show breadth, with emerging layers of butter and toasty oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate features full, open and richly accessible flavours of ripe citrus fruits melded with butterscotch and lemon curd, nutty and toasty oak and refined flinty complexities. The wine is stylishly rich and creamy, but expressed with a sense of restraint, and the wine follows a fine textured core and line, with underlying acid energy and tension. The finish is long and sustained with lush citrus and buttery nuances balanced by fine dry textures. This is a rich and lush, open Meursault with fine textures and a stylish restraint Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 5-6+ years. Grapes and must from regular contract growers, indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 25% new oak. 18.5/20 Feb 2015 RRP $84.99
