Live From Primewinebar

Haven just got out from a lunch tasting with Erwan Faiveley, courtsey of - notes to follow - I pass the Primewinebar and since I have no resistence what so ever I of course go in.
What to choose? Keeping up white the Burgundy theme I order a glass of

2009 Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres, F Mikulski
This 09 is big and ripe with lots of candied fruit, candle-grease, earthy aromas and christmas spices. Deep and powerful, maybe a tad much so. But there is depth here. Some chalky notes.
The taste is slimmer with lots of sweet lemons, dried fruits, smoky notes and sweet minerals. Not the most sleek, restrained,  elegant white Burgundy, but would this wine be a cleavage, most men would take a looong look...
89p   (tasted 2013/09)
