The Meursault Vieilles Vignes 2010 from Domaine Bernard-Bonin is a somewhat disappointing wine. The bouquet seems strangely restrained for a 2010 – with notes of apple and a few hints of orchard fruits. The quite fine minerality is the most promising element in the nose. On the palate – same story – a rather restrained expression. It’s focused, clean with a quite fine minerality for a village wine. The fruit is however quite one dimentional and matching the fruit impression in the nose. This wine is in my view lacking the sparkle and liveliness found in other 2010 whites. The terroir and grapes seems to be just fine, but the result is quite dull … just like when you get a slightly oxidized bottle. Not a poor wine … but certainly not recommended!
