Robert Parker – 90
The 2018 Meursault Vireuils is showing nicely in bottle, unwinding in the glass with hints of crisp Anjou pear, citrus oil, nutmeg and fresh bread. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and incisive, with a pretty core of fruit underpinned by a racy spine of acidity, it concludes with a chalky, penetrating finish. This is a fine success that I suspect will show even better with a few years in bottle, even if it’s deceptively charming right now.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2042
