A touch of nut oil and flavors of peach, apple, hazelnut and mineral denote this creamy, concentrated white. Lush and vibrant, this lingers on the lemon- and spice-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2017 through 2026. 72 cases imported. Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

The 2012 Meursault 1er Cru Sous Le Dos dAne has a refined bouquet with subtle scents of almond and white chocolate tincturing the tightly wound bouquet. The palate is refined, almost introspective on the entry. It is well-balanced with fine acidity, though it remains very focused and linear. There finish is bright and vivacious with citrus lemon and sour lemon lining the long finish. Very fine. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

Pale bright yellow. Deeply pitched, rather subdued aromas and flavors of stone fruits and clove. Round, ripe and dry but in a less structured style than the Puligny villages, without quite that wine's lift or grip. Still, this has just enough minerality on the back end to keep the wine firm and shapely. Stephan Tanzer, Vinous Media

While there is noticeable reduction it's not so much that the ripeness of the underlying fruit cannot be seen. The mouth feel of the medium weight flavors is finer than the Puligny villages but not as concentrated and here too there is that lovely sense of tension to the clean, dry, linear and citrus-inflected finale. This will also need a minimum of 3 to 5 years of cellar time before it will begin to display some of its potential. Allen Meadows, Burghound
