An appealingly fresh nose displays cool, airy and citrusy aromas of apple, pear, white flower and soft wood nuances. There is both good richness and energy to the nicely detailed and stony flavors that possess a generous mid-palate mouth feel, all wrapped in a dry and youthfully austere finish. This is a quality Meursault villages. Tasted: Jun 19; Drink: 2022+; Issue: 75; Comments: Outstanding Top value; Rating 89 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
Tasted from bottle, the 2017 Meursault Les Clous confirms its strong showing from barrel, exhibiting aromas of crisp Anjou pear, dried white flowers, beeswax and blanched almonds. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with excellent tension and depth at the core and an elegantly chalky finish. While it's a little shut down after its recent bottling, its quality is not in doubt. Tasted: April 19; Drink: 2021-2037; Rating: 90 Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
