Louis Jadot, Meursault Blagny 1988

The Meursault Blagny 1988 from Louis Jadot is slightly past it’s peak – but still very much drinkable. In the bouquet complex mature fruit notes with hints of coffee, butterscotch and honey. The oxidation is starting to show, with some notes of old belle de boskoop apples – not a big problem now, but it’s indicating – drink now. On the palate quite rich buttery fruit for a 1988, with a good fresh backbone acidity. Lovely balanced and quite elegant – a very good fully mature Burgundy.
