What experts say  
  86/100 "The 2012 Meursault Village has a light, slightly honeyed bouquet with hints of caramel. The palate is well-balanced, with uncomplicated vanilla-tinged citrus fruit and a commercially savvy finish. This is no more, no less than a decent “punters’” Meursault."

This Côte de Nuits has been a wonderful discovery for us! It shows a solid and subtle structure for its price range, thanks to a long ageing in oak barrels (15 to 20 months). After another few years in the bottle, it exhibits a concentrated nose of raspberry and cherry, cedar and spices. Palate is perfectly balanced with a long finish. A real hit!
