Ratings

Burghound: (87-89)
A classic Meursault nose features notes of hazelnut, pear and acacia blossom. There is fine richness and vibrancy to the still well-defined middle weight flavors that are presently on the tightly wound side but I suspect that this moderately complex effort will flesh out and thus be accessible after only a few years of bottle age. In sum, this is perfectly competent but not really distinguished.
