Meursault "Grands Charron" 2000, Forgot Domaine
Another wine tasted at the Planet of the Grapes wine bar in the City during a fantastic 4 hour tasting session covering Burgundy, Bordeaux, Walker Bay, the Mosel and Piemonte. The bottle disappeared before I could note down the domaine name which is unfortunate because this was a classic. Fine aromas of rock salt, fresh lemon, minerals, white oak and baked fish bones. Its hard to over-emphasise the wonderful Jurassic quality of this wine. Poetic, racy, superb minerality on the palate. Proof again that 2000 can offer special wines.
