Château de Meursault – Les Trois Journaux 2016 – Beaune-Grèves, 1er Cru

The nose is fruity, aromatic, racy and offers complexity as well as fine hints of power/intensity. It reveals notes of plum, violet and small notes of iris associated with touches of small ripe red fruits, toasted, Sichuan pepper as well as discreet hints of cardamom, vanilla and a very discreet hint of leather. The palate is fruity, juicy, elegant, well-built and offers a beautiful suavity/sapidity, fleshiness/juiciness, a mineral frame as well as a good guideline. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, fleshy/juicy red plum and small notes of blackberry associated with small hints of wild raspberry, cornflower/iris as well as discreet hints of liquorice stick, cardamom and a very discreet hint of vanilla. Tannins are elegant. There is a very discreet hint of almond/chocolate on the persistence.
