Meursault Narvaux, Louis Jadot 2018
The 2018 Meursault Narvaux comes from a single hectare of vines. It has a classy, well-defined bouquet of yellow flowers, Japanese yuzu and lemon thyme aromas that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is balanced but perhaps does not quite follow through in terms of quality vis-à-vis the aromatics, delivering honeyed fruit laced with orange peel and pineapple chunks but missing some tension and acidity on the finish. Not bad, but I prefer the Meursault Forges. 2021 - 2030

The 2018 Meursault Narvaux (Domaine Louis Jadot) is a fine cuvée this year, unwinding in the glass with aromas of fresh peach, citrus oil, white flowers and toasted nuts. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and elegantly textural, with racy acids and a precise finish. This derives mainly from the upper part of this large climat.
