The producer Jean Dupont is unknown to me, and this is also my first white Burgundy from the vintage 1973. The Meursault 1973 is however a pretty special wine – still fresh and crisp after nearly 30 years. The bouquet is still quite youthful, and only a slight cheasy notes is indicating the true age. Otherwise the nose offer fresh fruit, with notes of elderflowers, elderberries, citrus and pear. On the palate crisp acidity, good concentration and balance. The fruit is getting a slightly creamy and oily texture, indicating some age, but far from 30 years. A very special wine … remarkably fresh and crisp, but is lacking the support and complexity of a fine terroir. It should be noted that the wine has been recorked and topped up in 2012.
