Suggestion from September 17 2014
Wine: 2004 Meursault "Les Gruyaches"
Producer: Domaine Jean-Philippe Fichet
Comment: This is completely different and much more in the style that fans of the domain have come to expect with its ultra pure and refined, even airy aromas of peach, hazelnut and straw that introduce rich, full and sweet flavors that offer excellent volume and a supple, textured and opulent finish that is bone dry, strikingly intense and utterly palate staining. This is a powerful wine yet it remains an elegant one. Excellent juice here.
Score: 89-92 Drink: 2009+
