Suggestion from September 21 2016
Wine: 2010 Meursault "Les Tessons"
Producer: Domaine Jean-Philippe Fichet
Comment: A classic Meursault nose combines impressively well-layered ripe orchard fruit, hazelnut and acacia blossom aromas that precede the seductively textured but beautifully well-detailed medium weight plus flavors that possess stunningly good intensity before concluding in a bone dry citrus-infused finish. Wow, this is a striking villages that should absolutely be among the wines that you consider obtaining from the 2010 vintage.
