RATINGS

93+ Stephen Tanzer

...perfume of ripe peach, hazelnut and brown spices. Savory, utterly refined wine; at once ripe and dry, offering a lovely balance of salinity and concentrated stone fruit flavors...finishing salty and backward but without any hard edges.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Meursault, Les Genevrieres

Les Genevrieres is 41-acre Premier Cru vineyard in Meursault, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. It is in the southern part of the appellation, and just to the north of Les Perrieres and Les Charmes. Burgundy writer Clive Coates says that “Genevrieres is an opulent, even exotic wine. It is rounder than Perrieres and if not fuller, then certainly lusher…Here flavors are muskier, and there can be an element of citrus.” Since Meursault lacks a Grand Cru, Meursault’s reputation for excellence is based on the Premier Crus, particularly the whites.

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay, 1er (Premier) Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
