2008 Ropiteau Frères, Bourgogne BlancApr. 2010
A little oak toast mingles with the high tones. There’s a small burst of interest in the mouth, but this is essentially a little flat. Okay…
2008 Ropiteau Frères, Meursault RougeotsApr. 2010
Cool, reserved, ripe fruits on the nose. In the mouth there’s lots of energy, acidity and a good width. This is a very much better wine than the Bourgogne.
2008 Ropiteau Frères, Meursault Les PerrièresApr. 2010
Slightly soft but very good aromas of high-toned green-skinned fruits. Another wine that has very good energy and width. The finely detailed flavours really linger. Lots of dry extract. This is really very good.
2008 Ropiteau Frères, Puligny-Montrachet Champs GainsApr. 2010
Smells a little understated after the two Meursaults but is fine all the same. More concentration, less exuberance. A very nice insinuation of flavour in the mid-palate. Very good!
2006 Ropiteau Frères, Meursault Les GenevrièresApr. 2010
Warm ripe fruit against a deeper oak note. This is fat but has decent balance – though it’s disadvantaged following the 2008s. Very well put together and understatedly concentrated.
2007 Ropiteau Frères, Meursault CharmesApr. 2010
High tones and fresh fruit aromas. After Perrières 2008, this is more linear and wiry. There is a little more barrel flavour too. Good.
