Vintage information 1987:
1987 Giroud Camille, Meursault PerrièresDec. 2008
Medium golden. An understated nose that shows a little creamy wool. The palate is linear – perhaps (old) boney – but very smooth and rushes you into a reasonable – creamy again – finish just a little faster than you might wish for the appellation, but it’s probably the appellation that saves it given such an inauspicious year and a maker with little track-record for whites. Enough for a last glass was was left in the bottle overnight and it was even slightly better the next day – not a hint of oxidation. Will make even older bones!
1987 Lejeune, Pommard Les RugiensNov. 2003
A medium ruby core, fading slowly to amber. The nose shows tertiary aromas and surprisingly still a little primary raspberry fruit. On the palate there’s good depth to the fruit – shows an almost orangey note. Just a little rasping tannin on the finish. A surprisingly fine wine – I enjoyed this.
