Robert Parker – 94
The Meursault les Vireuils ’10 possesses a show-stopping bouquet that is more reminiscent of say, a Puligny Cailleret, its rich precocious fruit not obfuscating its granitic personality. There is astonishing clarity on the palate that is delicate and pretty, subtle citrus and peach on the entry that segues into a more terse, slate-like finish. This is an outstanding Meursault that should evolve beautifully over the next 10 to 15 years. Tasted March 2013.
Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028
