Meursault "Clos du Cromin" 2007, Bitouzet-Prieur
After an excellent tasting at the domaine with François Bitouzet I thought it would be interesting to try the Clos du Cromin 2007 which I purchased in July 2009. The nose is surprisingly oak dominated. The oak aromas combine with lemon, vanilla and aniseed to produce a ripe fennel nose. Touching on medicinal herbs. Lemon dominated on the palate with interesting edges of fennel, green apple and a hefty finish. This is a powerful 2007 which combines citrus, sweet herb and new oak flavours. Has the base materials to evolve for another 3 years. An interesting contrast to the Clos du Cromin 2009.
