Meursault "Cuvée Tête de Murger" 2007, Patrick Javillier

This Meursault is a blend of wines from the lieux-dits of "Les Casse-Têtes" and "Les Murgers" the former on the gentle incline behind Meursault and the latter flush against the boundary with Monthélie. Neither are close to the 1ers crus of Charmes and Perrières but this wine is priced at the same level as the Meursault-Charmes from the domaine. Plum blossom and cherry boosom, lemon, green melon. Different types of fruit acidity on the palate of clementine and red apple. Rich and pleasurable but I'd need to know more about the vinification, average age of vines and yields to understand why this is worth a 1er cru price.
