Château de Meursault 2016 – Beaune-Toussaints, 1er Cru

The nose is elegant, aromatic, well-built, racy, structured and offers richness as well as a good definition. It reveals notes of fleshy wild strawberry, fleshy blackberry and small notes of gray pepper associated with fine touches of crushed cassis as well as hints of cardamom and a very discreet hint of toasted/caramelization (in the background). The palate is fruity, racy and offers a beautiful balance, juiciness, a mineral frame, suavity, a good definition, a beautiful structure, freshness, gourmandize, a beautiful silkiness as well as a small concentration. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, fleshy raspberry and small notes of blackberry associated with small touches of cassis, flowers, a discreet hint of gray pepper, toasted/sweet spices as well as an imperceptible iodine hint (in the background) and vanilla (in the background). Good length. Beautiful finish, brings chews as well as gourmandize.
