RATINGS

94Stephen Tanzer

Sexy, vibrant aromas of mandarin orange flesh and peel lifted by a floral element. Densely packed and glyceral but a bit youthfully imploded, showing terrific inner-mouth energy and lift. Deeply perfumed soft citrus and spice flavors

93Burghound.com

The gorgeously textured and refined middle weight flavors display a bit more minerality on the opulent yet perfectly well-balanced finale that delivers outstanding length. This is really very stylish

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.
