Vintage information 1984:
1984 Boyer-Martenot Yves, Meursault CharmesOct. 2011
Golden. Hmm now this also shows no oxidation and has a little spicy honey on the nose. There is less direct impact versus the Pucelles, but the acidity is just a notch better and more impressive still is the way that the flavour grows in the mid-palate – many dimensions. This is first class old white burgundy. Yum!
1984 Juillot Michel, Corton PerrièresNov. 2003
From magnum. Paling ruby with a brown rim. The nose is non-existent for around 15 minutes – becomes a sweet cooked plum and cherry pie with time, creamy coffee too. Perfect acidity, just a trace of tannin and exceptional length to the compote-like fruit. Very lovely. Who says you shouldn’t by job-lots of cheap wine with no provenance?! The cost was around 20 Euros.
