1996

  • Meursault Genevrieres (19 Dec 2005): not oxidized [Rich Simpson]

  • Meursault En La Barre (November 07) Very good, not oxidized but mature and short and dull on the finish [Paul Hagerman]
  • Meursault en la Barre (27/10/09): perfectly sound, young, steely and acidic, still needs time (Sam Chafe)
  • Meursault Poruzots (Feb 2009): not oxidised [MLee]
  • Meursault Poruzots (Jul 2009): Hanging on but showing the beginnings of premature maderisation (Sam Chafe)

  • Meursault Genevrieres (12 Feb 2006): not oxidized [Mike During]
  • Meursault Poruzots (12 July 2006): not oxidized, quite nice actually [Michel Robert Abood]

  • Bourgogne Blanc (Aug 2005-Jan 2006): ~18 bottles - none especially oxidised [anonymous]
  • Meursault Poruzots (Jul 2010): No oxidation, very young an austere. Needs time but great wine [J. Prandi]

1999

  • Meursault Genevrieres (July 2005-Nov 2006): 1 magnificent, 11 oxidised and undrinkable (stored in bond). [Christian Devereux]
  • Meursault Genevrieres (3/2009) oxidized? - Same petroleum/chemical notes as the Charmes of 4 yrs ago. Another CT poster called it 'rubber band,' but didn't find it a fault. Colour was OK, but this was gross.[Andrew Hall]
  • Meursault Genevrieres (3/2012) - Correctly evolved. Nicely balanced between richness and mineral. Really nice. [Andrew Hall]
  • Meursault Charmes (6/2005) oxidized - Drank this before I started paying attention to the whole oxidation thing, so I figured it for a flawed bottle. My notes talk about sherry and petroleum distillate on the nose and palate to the point of undrinkable, so it belongs in the oxidized category. [Andrew Hall]
  • Meursault Charmes (8/2007). Still remember a young and tightly wound example from 2-3 years ago, this however was hopelessly undrinkable. [Odd Rydland]
  • Meursault Charmes (Mar 2009). Completely oxidized.
  • Meursault Charmes (Mar 2011). Oxidized, but correctly so. Minerally and quite enjoyable. [Andrew Hall]
  • Meursault Poruzots (January 2007): Starting to show signs of oxidizing. [Jim Coley]
  • Meursault Poruzots (Nov. 2010) Dark color; oxidized on nose and palate. I had another bottle in 2009 in the same condition. [Paul Klevgard]
  • Meursault En La Barre (Aug 2011): 1 bottle, oxidised (E Veitch)

2000

  • Meursault Poruzots (May 2005): not oxidized, very youthful [R DeAngelo]
  • Meursault Poruzots (June 2006) oxidized - deep golden color - polar opposite of the bottle had last year (R DeAngelo)
  • Meursault Poruzots (Dec. 2010) light golden color, somewhat oxidized nose, drinkable but clearly going downhill fast. (Paul Klevgard)

2001

  • Meursault Charmes (Sep 2007): tight, stony, not oxidized [MLee]
  • Meursault Poruzots (2008-2009): three bottles showing various degrees of maderisation, one bottle young and rather acidic, and three bottles attractively developed and drinking well. Although not bad, the last three had developed remarkably early and did not have the weight or structure normally found in Jobard wines (Sam Chafe).
  • Meursault Poruzots (Jul 2010): Good but not great, some evolution [J. Prandi]
  • Meursault Poruzots (Nov 2011):Not oxidized at all, really excellent bottle [Frank Drew]
  • Meursault Poruzots (Sept 2015) not oxidized but fully mature (R DeAngelo)
  • Meursault Genevrieres (July 2005) : 2 bottles. not oxidized [ejlammer]
  • Meursault Genevrieres (Feb 2011) : 3 bottles not oxidized, outstanding [ejlammer]
  • Meursault Genevrieres (July 1, 2011) - not oxidized in the slightest and quite excellent [Maureen Nelson]
  • Meursault Genevrieres (April 2015) : 2 bottles. not oxidized (R DeAngelo)
  • Meursault Genevrieres (July 2015) not oxidized (R DeAngelo)

2002

  • Meursault Genevrieres (9/2008) : not oxidized, but not terribly interesting either. [Andrew Hall]
  • Meursault Genevrieres (11/2009): not oxidized. Excellent [Kevin Harvey]
  • Bourgogne Blanc (tasted through 2008) 4 out of 5 clearly oxidized, The fifth bottle was delicious. (David Olsson)
  • Meursault Charmes (2/2015): Beautiful bottle. Started out very deep yellow towards orange with signs of age and oxidation but firmed up and even changed colour 5 hours later. Great classic Meursault. [Morten Båtbukt]

2003

  • Meursault En La Barre (November 19, 2009): slighty oxidized. [Gregg Ushiroda]

2004

  • Meursault En La Barre: (October 2010) near-alarming color when opened. Over ten minutes, the color deepened and the scant remaining nose and flavors crash-landed into full oxidation. [David Honig]
  • Meursault Genevrieres (November 2011) first bottle very oxidized (Suzanne Camhi)
    Meursault Genevrieres (November 2011) opened another it still has some life. Slight oxidative note drink up (Suzanne Camhi)
  • Bourgogne Blanc: (May 2011) Medium intense maize yellow with a clearing rim. Vaguely oxidative evolution is clearly present on the nose, which never really disappears. Acidity is starting to integrate but inadequately buffered on the mid-palate. Not exactly gone, but probably on its way.[Mike de Lange]

2005

  • Meursault Charmes (25 April 2011): deep gold, watery, sherry notes, strange acidity. Second bottle of five showing oxidation. [Andrew Rose].
  • Meursault Charmes (March 2013) not oxidized - powerful and tightly coiled (R DeAngelo)
  • Meursault Poruzots (Jul 2010): Powerful and young, no oxidation, great wine [J. Prandi]
  • Meursault En La Barre (Aug 2011): 1 bottle, no oxidation.(E Veitch)

2006

  • Meursault En La Barre (06JUL10): deep yellow on opening, oxidized within 20 minutes of aeration [Ralph Earle] .
  • Meursault Poruzots (Jul 2010): Good but not great, rich [J. Prandi]

2007

  • Meursault Charmes (Sept 2014) not quite "premoxed" but very advanced. Deep gold color (R DeAngelo)
