2009 Javillier Patrick, Meursault Clos du CrominMay. 2011
The nose offers hints of oak toast over a sweeter core. Lovely balance and very nice acidity. This is very tasty – not incredibly intense (it seems) but lovely all the same.
2008 Gambal Alex, Meursault Clos du CrominApr. 2010
High-tones aromas of lovely, fresh fruit – hints of pear. Tighter packaged than the villages Chassagne (hard not to be) but the’s a lovely mid-palate width, with flavours that really hold in the finish. Bravo.
2006 Gambal Alex, Meursault Clos du CrominApr. 2008
14.7° natural – and you wouldn’t guess if I didn’t tell you! A deep, dense nose with a tight core of fruit at the centre. This is concentrated and savoury with plenty of mid-palate dimension. The finish gently lingers and there’s no impression fo ‘heat’
2004 Gambal Alex, Meursault Clos du CrominMar. 2006
Bought-in as juice. Again very pale in colour. A much deeper nose than the bourgogne, precise and interesting. Good acidity with a wide and expansive palate, good length too. This is mineral and fresh – very athletic in pose – distance rather than power, taught and tight. Super villages.
2001 Château Génot-Boulanger, Meursault Clos du CrominJul. 2004
Pale golden colour. The nose has a well presented base of oak surmounted by a higher toned fruit top layer. Good fat and acidity – not the minerality of the Chablis – This is almost good and shows plenty of Meursault character, but at more than twice the price of Colombier’s Chablis I don’t see the value.
