2005 Yves Boyer-Martenot Meursault "Le Tillets"
Meursault, Burgundy, France
 
WB Rating: 88

 
Alcohol by volume: 13.0%
Price at time of purchase: $24.58 (North Berkeley Wine Imports)
 
Type: Chardonnay
Principal varietal(s): Chardonnay

This excellent Chardonnay displays a complex nose of ripe peaches, pears, lemon oil, roasted nuts, and a major dose of cinammon/nutmeg spice. Full mouth feel with good balancing acidity to keep its energy level high. Very good, though didn't strike me as having the depth and complexity of some other Boyer-Martinot whites I've had in the past. [Purchased during an excellent sale at North Berkeley; normal cost would be much higher.] - HK 2010-02-19
