Written Notes

The 1959 Drouhin Meursault Goutte d’Or was spectacular. If anyone doubts the ageability of white wine, find yourself a well-stored bottle of this. This was an amazing nose at first whiff. Nutty and super smoky, this had hickory, charcoal and everything good you could possibly smoke meats with. Buttery and yellow, it warmed my soul like an old sun. Butter rum was distinctively the flavor of choice for this ‘exciting’ wine. This was exotic in the candied and caramel direction. This was a lush, creamy and wow wine. It got an extra point just because we should all age this well (96).
