2010 Mikulski François, Meursault Gouttes d'OrJan. 2012
Less deep aromas than the Meix Cheveaux but finer and wider with a little crystallized ginger. This wine just bursts with life; the intensity is such that it’s hard to keep in your mouth as it urges you to swallow. Brilliant!
2007 Mischief and Mayhem, Meursault Gouttes d'OrApr. 2011
A super width of caramel inflected, mineral aromas. The texture is lithe rather than fat, quite some minerality too. Excellent acidity and good intensity – long on a mineral note. Yum.
2007 Mischief and Mayhem, Meursault Gouttes d'OrJul. 2009
Bottled in March. Ripe fruit aromas with perfectly integrated faint oak and hints of mint leaf. Mouth-filling with an extra edge of fat versus the Charmes. Lovely crystallised lemon fruit on the long finish. Lovely
2006 Morey-Blanc, Meursault Gouttes d'OrDec. 2008
High-toned and perhaps a shade diffuse, but really lovely fruit underpins it – super. Rich but balanced and is full of mid-palate dimension. Nice length and lovely – again.
2005 Morey-Blanc, Meursault Gouttes d'OrNov. 2007
The nose is understated but shows a subtle width. In the mouth there is also a nice width and lovely complexity – this is very fine – and no fat! Very, very lovely.
2005 Bouchard Père et Fils, Meursault Gouttes d'OrApr. 2007
Given my preference for the fresh and mineral plus 2005’s rather rich expression I was preparing to dislike this bottle – but I was rather surprised: The nose is waxy, wide and concentrated – smells lovely. There’s almost an oily concentration on the palate but with a surprisingly wonderful balance. This is a really lovely wine that shows super length. I could get to like this – really!
1996 Boillot Pierre, Meursault Gouttes d'OrJul. 2005
Golden colour. High-toned nose initially hints at oxidation but blows off to reveal quite exotic, ripe fruit. The palate has nice, clean, citrussy fruit and some minerality. A quality wine of good length.
2000 Bouchard Père et Fils, Meursault Gouttes d'OrMar. 2003
Slightly more new oak than the Genevrières. Nose is fairly subdued with faint toast. Sweet palate is a little more buttery, perhaps honey too. Not obviously oaky. Nice acidity with reasonable length. A very nice wine.
