Type: A.O.C. Côte de Beaune - Meursault 1er Cru
Makers: Maison Deux Montille
Origin: Burgundy, France
Ratings: RP/WA 92/100
The Deux Montille 2007 Meursault Poruzots – from old vines adjacent to those farmed by Alix de Montille's husband Jean-Marc Roulot – smells and tastes piquantly of lightly-toasted walnut and hazelnut, accompanied by ripe, succulent peach and bright lemon that steer this chalk- and stone-paved, bitterly nutty, and subtly cyanic Meursault clear of austerity. Though super-concentrated and palpably dense, this wine displays some textural give, and finishes with a striking sense of lift as well as persistent refreshment. It certainly seems a candidate for a half dozen or more years of bottle age, and I would be inclined to leave it alone until at least 2011.
