Meursault, Benjamin Leroux, Burgundy, France 2012
A fleshy, driven white Burgundy, yet this is not your 'typical' Meursault. It's got a lovely, silky texture yet is really fresh and tangy with a lick of chalky stone and minerality. Some toasty oak is evident on the nose, this is a beautifully expressive wine. It is lightly honeyed and layered in the mouth with intense orchard fruit flavours. This wine is expressive and the underlying minerality helps support the richness very well indeed.
