Clos Du Cromin 2009
You white Burgundy fans will rejoice at how delicious this wine is, and will appreciate that this is actually a great value. Toasted brioche, and hints of baked apple with a beautiful mineral character. Like most great Meursault, there is a richness set around a firm, acidic core that holds this tight on your palate, and hints at this wine’s longevity. There’s a whiff of something not too different than the aroma of bird seed that sits gently alongside the oak character, lending complexity. The finish is long, but in a clean, sophisticated way that makes each sip feel complete. Like the satisfaction of finishing a jigsaw puzzle, but then all you want to do is start another one. Drinkable now, but I would love to see how this evolves over the next decade.
There is very little of this wine made, and there’s only a few cases available in Georgia. The wine will be here Friday, so pleasereply-to-reserve yours now. This would be a great gift for wine nerds, or any Chardonnay fans on your shopping list (yourself included!) who want to experience what Burgundy is all about.
