“Airy and ripe aromas of both white and yellow orchard fruit, roasted hazelnut and citrus hints are framed by the discreet but not invisible oak treatment. There is excellent volume and concentration to the muscular and solidly powerful medium weight plus flavors where a citrus-inflected finish helps to add vibrancy. Note that this youthfully austere effort is not particularly complex at present though my score envisions the development of additional depth with time in bottle.”

“The 2012 Meursault 1er Cru Le Poruzot-Dessus comes from a 0.57-hectare parcel of vines planted in 1944 and 1985. It has a lovely bouquet bursting with mineralite and tension. It actually reminds me of one of Jean-Marc Roulot’s gems. The palate is very well balanced with a crisp, very focused, citric entry. There is lovely poise and freshness here – a wine leaves you craving to taste it out of bottle tout de suite.”

“Apple, blossom, no oak to speak of (or smell of), quite tight structure – not the cliché of fatness for this Meursault. Zippy.”
