Planted in 1924 by Vincent Boyer’s great grandmother Lucie, the “Ormeau” vineyard is named for the elm trees that once shared the clay-rich ground. This is classic, mouthfilling Meursault – showing peaches and citrus, with pear and a faint nuttiness in the nose. The 2019 is outstanding, and a more serious take on the vineyard than in some years. There’s the classic Meursault nose – hazelnuts, white flowers, stones – but the mouth shows added concentration and superb energy. It’s still a traditional fleshy Meursault, but there’s no denying there’s more substance here than in some vintages. Burghound noted the same thing, writing “The old vines are in evidence as there is an abundance of dry extract.” He labeled it “outstanding,” and called it “a very good Meursault villages.
