Classic 97+ points. “This sensational new release has a complex, quite compelling bouquet: citrus peel, minerality and pressed white flowers all vying for attention with superb intensity. The palate is rich and silky, featuring delightful notes of fresh pastry, lemon oil and hints of passion fruit, gently unfolding in the mouth with a savory finish that will pair perfectly with a myriad of cuisine. This is a truly classy Meursault and simply a beautifully crafted wine with a long future ahead. Bravo!” (June, 2016)

Stephen Tanzer’s Tasting notes: “Bright yellow. Musky scents of apricot, peach and oak. A bit tight but already delivers an old-vines intensity to its ripe, fine-grained stone fruit and mineral flavors. Harmonious acidity frames the fruit and gives grip to the long, firm, honeyed finish. Still a bit youthfully aggressive, this superb Poruzots should age well.”

Allen Meadows Tasting notes: “There is a hint of the exotic to the fresh if markedly ripe nose of white and yellow orchard fruit, muscat and floral aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. The big-bodied, powerful and concentrated flavors brim with dry extract while delivering fine if not truly exceptional depth and persistence on the clean and relatively dry finish.”
