Color

rich straw yellow

Nose

Hui, you think involuntarily when you lift the glass to your nose for the first time. The 2018s Bourgogne Côte d'Or »Vieilles Vignes" is extraordinarily expressive, even at such a young age. In fact, the white open 2018s significantly earlier than the shyer 2017s. Here white blossoms and white peach, yellow pears and apples, some orange including abrasion and a breath of almonds are found.

Palate

On the palate, this - if you like - graduated Meursault an impressive power and energy. The quality of the old vines comes through here with clear minerality and liveliness. The white and yellow fruit is juicy, the texture distinctly charming and silky, the acidity ripe and also gentle, but remains present for a long time and provides freshness. This Burgundy one would like to drink very gladly already now. One may call this wine quite a real bargain.
