1999 morey-blanc meursault (yuk!)



1999 Morey-Blanc, Meursault
Inspecting the half-bottle, there’s some very fine sediment at the base and the wine is not perfectly bright. Under the capsule it is completely black, it looks like you could plant potatoes! The cork comes out and has pink and blue lines down it, the dark coloured wine is – quite obviously – oxidised! Not to an undrinkable level, but not far away. The nose has a little ginger mixed in with the oxidised aromas. In the mouth it seems clean and fresh. The acidity seems a little separate from the rest of the wine, but it is quite fine, but it’s oxidised…
Rebuy – No

    Half bottle of ten year old village Meursault in oxidation shock?

    Come on Bill. What were you thinking?

      I was thinking that I have to clear out all those half bottles 😉
      For balance though, when last on the Côtes I had a 1986 villages Pernand (blanc!) from a half bottle, it was a bit odd, but no oxidation…
