9/00. Bought at auction, Jan-00 for $60.
A few days ago I had the elegant and stylish 1994 Meursault 1er Cru 'Genevrieres' from Jobard. A fine wine it was, though somewhat atypical in that it was not as fat and chewy as a good Meursault usually is.
Today I tried the 'lesser' appellation of Blagny, a small hamlet near Meursault that produces both red and white wines. (The reds are sold as 'Blagny' while the whites are labeled 'Meursault-Blagny')
COLOR: Medium-deep gold, somewhat darker than the Genevrieres.
NOSE: Rich buttery nutty nose. Good complex minerals and white fruit. Very nice, very Meursault.
TASTE: Impressively Mouth-filling. Full, voluptuous flavors. Forward, expansive and a pleasure to sip. Really tasty and very satisfying.
LENGTH: Medium long honeyed (but dry) aftertaste.
TEXTURE & BALANCE: Medium full bodied. Viscous and fat. Rich rather than elegant, but finely balanced.
OVERALL: Fine. More like a true Meursault than the 'Genevrieres'. Probably the best Blagny I ever had.
|MARK: 17.5/20.||BUY MORE? Yes.|
