Javieller Meursault Tillets 2002

Yellow-gold.  A discreet, understated, wintery nose: slightly herbal yellow fruit, lemon verbena, acacia blossom, powdered flint and fleur du sel.  A bit backward for eleven year old villages.  More typically La-Z-Boy Meursault on the palate, warm, relaxed, a velvet texture tinged with smoke and savory spice: Anjou pear, yellow nectarine, quince and grilled hazelnut.  A firm lace of acidity: it’s malic, and it’s still got its ’02 teeth.  Mineral bath finish; it finishes where it starts.  This wine is a tale of two cities, a mixbreed of Meursault plush and Puligny steel.  Invigorating, a bit beguiling and just as compelling as Roulot’s example. Fine juice. Now – 2015.
