Type: A.O.C. Côte de Beaune - Meursault
Makers: VINCENT GIRARDIN
Origin: Burgundy, France
Ratings: RP/WA 91/100
Tangerine and lemon in the nose of Girardin’s 2007 Meursault Narvaux lead to a concomitantly refreshing palate tinged with chalk and the bitterness of citrus pips and toasted nuts. A sense of underlying extract and satiny richness of texture keep this from seeming spare, and the long, saline, chalky finish – which really tugs at the salivary glands – is frankly quite reminiscent of the Saint-Aubin Dents de Chien that preceded it in my tasting. Here too, I suspect a wine worthy of 6-8 years of attention. This was not only harvested late, it was also Girardin's last wine of the vintage to be bottled.
