1985 Hospices de Beaune Meursault-Genevrieres "Cuvee Philippe-Le-Bon" Burgundy France by Remoissenet Pere et Fils
Golden yellow color with bright reflects and clean, clear aspect in the glass. The nose at first was a bit tight and oxidative but remained fresh and pleasant. After a few minutes in the glass, it started to developed nutty-mineral character with oak nuances. The palate also expressed lot of the mineral and nutty flavors expected in such a wine. “Confit” and dried golden and yellow fruit as well as mineral, typical to Meursault rich limestone soil, mingled nicely with the refreshing acidity in the rich and voluptuous palate; a sign that this wine could probably last a little longer despite the oxidative nutty notes on the nose and palate. I personally really enjoyed it and found it very attractive, pleasing, well balanced overall and integrated. It shows some age and may have already reached its peak for some palates, but I give it more credit than that. An enlightening experience!
