2017 Meursault Narvaux, Louis Jadot
Christmas dinner with the family (instead of a vertical tasting of Kongsgaard Chardonnay...). I wanted something decent to drink so I opened these two bottles.
The young Meursault leaps out from the glass with a smoky, buttery nose with additional notes of tangerines, fudge and yellow flowers. Intense and very fine.
The taste is deep, broad and refined with notes of sweet oranges, fudge, smoke and a hitn of coconut. A very fine acidity. Long and luscious. 6+ years. Great wine.
From my perennial favourites Pain of Salvation, they released this in 2017.

1986 Château Potensac
Another bottle from the recent Potensac buy. This 86 displays a velvety, mature nose with notes of autumn leaves, clean stables, ripe black currants, violets and cold coffee. A very fine maturity.
The taste is mature, dry and structured with notes of red and black currants, undergrowth, pencil shavings and tiles. Medium bodied. Drinking perfect today.
And this catchy tune came out in 1986.
