Review:
The 2018 Meursault Clos du Cromin, from a location north of Volnay Santenots, is a little broody on the nose at first and demands encouragement from the glass. Touches of wax resin and pressed flowers eventually emerge, veering toward Puligny in style. The palate is taut and fresh on the entry with lip-smacking salinity. Vibrant and energetic, displaying impressive precision and finesse on the finish. This is an exceptional Clos du Cromin.
