02 Chateau Genot-Boulanger, Meursault Les Meix Chavaux

As with the Meursault-Charmes I had in August, it's a bit too early to talk about this wine. Of course, I'm going to anyway. Despite the tightness, its smoky herbal aroma is not unlike a young blanc de blancs Champagne. The lean, green apple, Lemonhead, and starfruit tastes, however, show that this might have been better with some bubbles. Driven by its sharp texture, the hints of creme fraiche, cardamom, and french vanilla are mostly supressed. Still, I like the promise this wine makes to do something in the next two years.
