Tasting note

2013 Philippe Pacalet Meursault

Golden yellow colour. Pronounced legs in the glass. On the nose, ripe citrus fruits. Dried oranges, buttery aromas, honey and hazelnuts. Really quite expressive. Full-bodied and fleshy in the mouth, again with ripe fruits showing on the palate. Biscuits, orange marmalade perhaps, lemon tart, ripe Boskoop apples. Long-lasting finish. This is not the most elegant or mineral of Meursault expressions, but it is showing really well and with its richness turns out to be a match even for heartier dishes and desserts as well. Keeping in mind this is a village wine, it is really top quality.

Drink through 2026.
