2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Meursault "Narvaux"

SKU #1331789 89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 An interesting nose consists of lemon-lime, petrol and spiced apple aromas. Once again there is a really lovely texture to the caressing and sappy medium weight flavors that exhibit a subtle minerality on the mildly austere and relatively dry finish. This is a very fine Meursault villages and worth a look.  (6/2017)

91 points Decanter

 Notes of ripe pear, hazelnut and oatmeal are the prelude to an attractive Meursault Narvaux showing good concentration, freshness and minerality, which only suffered by comparison to their stunning Chassagne Caillerets which preceded it.Drinking Window 2018 - 2035.(WK)  (2/2017)

89-91 points Vinous

 Colin picked this fruit on the fourth day of the harvest, which he described as "possibly a bit late"): Strong white peach and nectarine aromas accented by anise and white pepper. More plump and sweet than most of the preceding wines from Chassagne and Puligny, and a bit warm in spite of the fact that its alcohol is not quite 13%. Nicely concentrated, and lifted by a peppery nuance (and some CO2), but doesn't quite come alive today. Will this show more personality by the time it goes into bottle?(ST)  (9/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Meursault Les Narvaux has an upfront, quite extroverted bouquet with marzipan and nutmeg-tinged citrus fruit, a little raucous but there is nothing wrong with that. The palate is well balanced with orange cordial and tangerine notes, nicely balanced, although I feel that the warmth of the growing season just shaved away a little definition on the finish.(NM)  (4/2017)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
Specific Appellation:

Meursault

- The town of Meursault is a prosperous village, with a Gothic town hall and narrow winding streets. It produces a small amount of red wine, but is justly famous for its whites. Although it has no Grand Cru vineyards, its Premiers Crus are justly famous, particularly Charmes, Poruzots, Perrières and Genevrières. A good Meursault has concentration, grip and backbone, in addition to its soft and rich fruit.
