St Aubin & Meursault 1 Lesson Burgundy Master 2018 by Emanuele Spagnuolo
The wines of first lesson of Master of the Burgundy 2018:
St. Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly 2015 Marc Colin
Expressive, ready, opulent.
Perhaps too much seen the area of origin.
The vintage makes it already very pleasant despite its young age.
Butter in the mouth, besides the savory part. But the softness is too much for my taste.
Perhaps for the purists a St Aubin a little too "tame" but at the end a great glass.
St. Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly 2015 Hubert Lamy
Here we are more in the heart of St Aubin, it is still a bit grumpy young, you have to look for it with your nose. Sapid, marine, long in the mouth. It is not so
"Rabid" as in 2014 or 2016 but it is a race horse without rivals. Sumptuous for the expressiveness of the terroir.
Meursault Les Corbins 2015 Vincent Dancer
Now Vincent Dancer is an absolute champion and this village wine is the demonstration.
Straight, vertical wine without heeling.
On the nose the wine is sapid and well defined. Notes of gunpowder, flowers, spices. In the mouth it is well balanced, balanced, harmonious.
It lacks a bit of length in the end but on the other hand is a village on paper, in the glass is much more.
Meursault 1er Cru Le Porusots 2014 Antoine Jobard
Partly not expressed wine. On the nose it is still a little closed, shy.
The aromas are there but at a reduced intensity although they are really very fine and elegant.
In the mouth it is muscular, rough, sapid.
Wine is not simple and difficult to interpret. At this moment it is certainly not great but it intrigues me and I wait some time to understand how it will be its evolution.
Meursault 1er Cru Le Goutte d'Or 2013 Buisson Charles
This is the wine of the evening.
Outclass all in complexity, breadth and depth of drink.
The vineyard is wonderful, but a wine like that is a surprise for me, especially in a vintage like 2013 that until now had not amazed me in the whites.
Bewitching wine for both experts and for those approaching for the first time to white Burgundy.
The nose has an olfactory spectrum worthy of a grand cru of the noblest neighbors of Montrachet.
The hardness mixes with the softness, defining a wine that changes 100 times in the glass.
In the mouth it is precise, long, complex.
Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres 2012 Michelot
This is the real disappointment of the evening in my opinion.
It pulls out the fruit from all its pores, exotic fruit, but then stops there. And it is very little for the most beautiful vineyard of Meursault or almost.
The vintage is beautiful, the vineyard is beautiful, but the wine I regret to say is boring in the glass.
Maybe it's a moment but for now it is undoubtedly a wine under tone.
Meursault 1er Cru Blagny 2005 Negoce Leroy
What can you say to a wine like that?
It took him 5 hours to open up, but then he took out class and level in a marvelous vintage.
Broad, muscular, perhaps not too elegant.
Consistent mouth and nose. A high level wine.
His problem? That at the end of the fair is a good wine, but we are in the norm, and when we read "Leroy" we always expect only special wines. Those are in the galaxy of the Domaine or D'auvenay, Here in the negocius we are land.
