Domaine Latour-Giraud, Meursault Les Genevrières 1er Cru 2005

Latour-Giraud Meursault Genevieres 2005

Ten years on tasting.

Lemon yellow with a gilded sheen.   A fullish wine, as panoramic as he is concentrated.  Heady red-soil fragrance of nutmeg, blossom honey, nut oil, chicken stock, spruce resin.  Sappy, swollen and powerful, such is his layering of yellow nectarine, quince and mirabelle.  Insistent but fruit-driven so for drinking soon.
