Other Reviews....
This too is quite floral in character with plenty of citrus nuances to the mostly green apple scents. There is once again fine density and volume to the attractively textured medium-bodied flavors thanks to the nicely abundant dry extract that coats the palate on the solidly long finish. This is surprisingly good for young vines and while it's not quite as complex as the Puligny villages, it may well catch up with a few years of bottle age.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Mingling aromas of orange oil and Anjou pear with hints of white flowers, buttery pastry and toasted nuts, the 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Sous le Dos d'Ane is medium to full-bodied, chalky and incisive, with a bright spine of acidity and a mineral finish. This has turned out nicely and should reward a bit of bottle age.

The 2018 Meursault Sur le Dos de l’Ane has a very intense bouquet that is actually quite Puligny-like in style. The palate is well balanced with a saline tang on the entry, modest depth and a spicy, energetic finish. Fine.

Neal Martin - Vinous

Clear fresh pale colour. The bouquet offers citrus notes with a bit of barrel spice. Clean pure and relatively concentrated white fruit with a touch of lemon and spice too. Medium length.
