Meursault "Les Grands Charrons" 2001, Michel Bouzereau
Tasted blind this Meursault was medium yellow with a bright and reflective texture. The first nose was buttery, evolving to oak, limestone and volatile acidity. Aromas top out with minerals and sea salt with a citrus edge. In the mouth the wine is savoury. with very fresh acidity, a certain harsh elegance, persistence, full oak tannins, medium to high acidity, and a dry finish. An impressive wine with surprisingly high acidity. Will evolve further but no need to wait. Better with food than tasted alone.
