Got told off for noting this one at dinner with SJ, AM and Chris. Anyway, reasonably happy to have done so as it was a pretty decent, quite rich Meursault. Mid-to-deep yellow gold. Ripe melon & pear nose with touches of cream, overlayed with gentle sweet spice and oak toast. Buttery, rich, caramel-laced, yellow peach flavours with nutty (almond or hazelnut?) overtones. Medium+ length. Pretty good and well enjoyed by all!
