This rich, oak-aged wine is impressive and concentrated. With a spicy wood character and ripe apple, green plum and citrus fruit tones, it is intense and dense. The mineral texture, tight and tangy, and fresh finish marks the wine as one ready to age. Drink from 2020.

The 2016 Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru is more steely and reserved, offering up notes of crisp green apple, melon oil, chamomile and light reduction. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, chalky and tensile with nice concentration and a tangier, more acid-driven profile. This is built to reward bottle age.
This wine from steep slopes with clayey-calcareous subsoils is always strongly marked by its terroir. Its mineral and flinty character is unique in Meursault. You will notice the contrast between minerality and notes of honey in the bouquet. The rich, fruity, and powerful aromas are highlighted by spicy and mineral notes. Delicious exotic dishes will pair perfectly with this complex wine, whose personality will have fully developed after 3-7 years in the bottle.
