2007 Bourgogne-Aligoté:  A spicy, expressive and very fresh nose that is classic Aligoté in character leads to energetic,precise and racy flavors that possess plenty of personality and punch. If you enjoy the grape, this is a fine example. 85/2010+

  

2007 Meursault – Vieilles Vignes: A ripe and very Meursault nose features notes of honeysuckle, hazelnut and fresh citrusthat continues onto the rich and relatively full-bodied flavors that retain a fine sense of underlying detail and solid acid support, all wrapped in a balanced, energetic and perfumed finish. Lovely. 88/2012+

  

2007 Meursault “Tessons”: (from vines planted in 1964 and aged in 20% new wood). This is also quite ripe in the context ofthe vintage with a pure, refined and airy nose of dried rose petal, lemon zest and pear hints that can also be found on the precise, racy and intensely mineral flavors that possess excellent underlying material and outstanding length for a villages level wine. Recommended. 90/2012+

  

2007 Meursault “Les Cras”: Here the nose is riper still (which is typical for this vineyard as the site collects heat) with fresh notes of apricot, peach and pear nuanced by citrus hints that transfer over to the textured, precise and stony flavors that areunderpinned by a lovely sense of tension on the focused, persistent and sappy finish. 90/2012+

  

2007 Meursault “Charmes”:  As it usually is at this address, the Charmes is noticeably more complex if not necessarily moreelegant than the Les Cras with a layered, ripe and pure nose of orchard fruit and citrus blossom that complements the round and relatively opulent medium-bodied flavors that do not lose focus or precision on the sappy and mouth coating finish that displays admirably fine length. Lovely stuff and I like the hint of backend minerality. 91/2013+

  

2007 Meursault “Goutte d’Or”: This is slightly riper but more elegant with a subtle touch of spice adding depth to the citrus, apricot and fresh peach aromas that leads to detailed, lemony and more obviously mineral suffused flavors that possessexcellent complexity on the driving finish. There is absolutely no sense of heaviness present, which Goutte d’Or can sometimes display, with perfect balance. This is at another level. 92/2013+

 

2007 Meursault “Bouchères”: An expressive nose of high-toned white peach, citrus and pear aromas are nuanced by subtle notes of hazelnut and orange blossom that give way to rich, full, textured and mouth coating flavors that evidence a silky mouth feel and culminate in a focused, linear, vibrant and solidly mineral finish. This is impeccably well balanced and really drenches the palate in extract. 92/2013+

 

2007 Bourgogne :  A fresh, serious and earthy red berry fruit nose leads to rich, full and moderately structured flavors that are rustic but complex, all wrapped in a delicious and lively finish. Good quality for its level. 85/2011+

 

2007 Pommard “En Chiveau”: (En Chiveau sits at considerable altitude high above the village). A very subtle touch of wood frames equally fresh though more complex and spicier red berry fruit aromas that are nuanaced by hints of minerality and earth that continue onto the rich and relatively robust flavors that carry a trace of rusticity but not much and finish with plenty of Pommard character. Again, fine quality in the context of its level. 88/2013+

 

2007 Volnay “Santenots”: (from vines situated in the upper part of the vineyard that is distinctly rockier and actually more like Caillerets than a classically rich and generous Santenots). A distinctly floral nose displays a touch of wood on the complex, spicy and notably ripe cassis and red berry fruit mélange that introduces fresh, pure, precise and stony middle weight flavors that possess an attractive texture on the dusty, persistent and stylish finish. This is lovely and worth a look. 90/2014+
