Tasting Notes

90-92 Points Jasper Morris
Mid lemon colour, a little bit of reduction, attractive volume here from this plateau site, the fruit offering some depth of flavour with lively tension. Ripe apple with a citrus tint, long and pleasing. Very good.

89-91 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2020 Meursault Les Clous wafts from the glass with aromas of pear, grapefruit, hazelnuts, struck match, white flowers and Meyer lemon. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and expressive, it’s an open, lively wine that concludes with a chalky finish.

88-90 Points Allen Meadows
Ripe aromas of hazelnut, pear and apple compote are trimmed in soft nuances of citrus and oak. There is excellent volume to the rich but vibrant medium weight flavors that exude evident minerality on the slightly more complex and youthfully austere finale that is noticeably firmer. This will need at least a couple of years.
