The Devil Ain't Always Right

Of all the white Burgundies..Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet & Meursault..the latter has always given me the most pleasure. Years ago there was always a bottle on a restaurant menu..and wine merchants had a few to choose from. Where are they now...Japan & China maybe...the label drinkers have taken them!
In my desperate search to re-live a 'Meursault Moment' I purchased this one recently..I was a little cautious
..12 years old...I shouldn't have listened to that devil on my shoulder.
Meursault Blagny 1995
Joseph Matrot
Meursault, France

Yellow gold colour...sherry aroma, oxidated nose...medium-full body...
balanced, this is quite rich..
but should have been drunk a few years ago
if you are a 'nose' man(or woman).

Points 15.5

That's bad news. I'm very wary of white burgundy from the 90s. All the stories of random oxidation have scared me.

PS. After my recent holiday, I'm sure all the Burgundy in the world is Hong Kong!
