Meursault-Perrières 1er Cru 2013, Vincent Dancer

Tasted chez Albert Lee (the top sockeye salmon Iron Chef in the NW) in Vancouver this Meursault premier Cru opens on a lovely nose of white honey, honeysuckle, Normandy butter, nectarine, toast, satsuma rind and lemon flavoured icing. This glorious nose announces a superb palate of yellow apple, yellow peach, orange, mineral texture. Poised, rich and finely structured. Saffron and a hint of maple syrup. Medium acidity. Shows the richness from the older vines of 51 and 34 years. Impressive Meursault which could age for another 2-3 years but is already wonderful to imbibe. Scores 91/100.
