VINOUS
(15% new oak): Pale yellow. Orange oil, stone, hazelnut and a hint of vanilla on the nose; a real essence of Genevrieres. Rich and silky on the palate, but with lovely lift to the flavors of orange, stone fruits and minerals. Then quite dry and uncompromising on the back end, finishing with a lightly tannic impression. This classically styled Meursault should age very well.

BURGHOUND
This is presently noticeably reduced and thus if you're tempted to crack a bottle young I would strongly advise decanting it. Otherwise there is an exceptionally fine texture to the medium-bodied flavors that are concentrated yet vibrant before culminating in a lightly mineral-inflected, clean, dry and impeccably well-balanced finish. This should be excellent if allowed a few years of bottle age first.
