2019, Morey-Blanc, MEURSAULT "Clos Le Meix Tavaux"
The first vintage from this recently purchased (.29ha) vineyard. This parcel is situated just above the “les Cloux” stream, facing the hillside of Meix Chavaux, in the heart of the village, where the slope is quite gentle and the soils rocky and well-draining.
A very Meursault nose is both more elegant and fresher with attractively layered aromas of various white fleshed fruit, citrus confit and a whiff of acacia blossom. The succulent, round and seductively textured flavours are generously proportioned while maintaining good focus on the balanced and sneaky long finale. This is lovely and a wine that should come around relatively quickly.
Outstanding. 89-91 Burghound
The 2019 Meursault Le Meix Tavaux is a debut release from a vineyard between Clos du Cromin and the road that heads toward Auxey-Duresses. It was bought by a society formed by Anne Morey and Antoine Jobard. "It is not a steep slope," Anne Morey told me, "but it drains well, the soil having a little more sand." It has a well-defined bouquet of orange pith, red apples, hazelnut and a touch of honeysuckle. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, harmonious and lightly spiced. This is a very promising debut and a welcome addition to the Morey range. Six-and-a-half barrels produced.
90-92 Neal Martin.
A small new cuvée from Anne Morey debuts with the 2019 Meursault Clos le Meix Tavaux, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive wine evocative of green apples, citrus oil, toasted bread and white flowers.
89-91 William Kelley.
