In this low-yielding vintage, Pierre-Yves Colin opted to produce a 2019 Meursault Village, blending fruit from Narvaux (which he often bottles as a lieu-dit cuvée) with grapes from Grands Charrons and Vireuils. This is a fine hillside cuvée, mingling aromas of crisp orchard fruit, praline and lemon oil with hints of dried white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, it’s bright and chalky, concluding with a long finish.
Moderate sulfur pushes the aromas of hazelnut and acacia blossom to the background at present. The rich, caressing and punchy flavors possess an appealing energy and brightness on the palate while exhibiting sneaky good length on the focused and linear finale where once again there is a trace of warmth.
