Rich, ripe aromas of peach, honey and marzipan. Broad, opulent and full; a big, sweet, open wine with impressive volume. ...offers a classic example of the creamy side of this attractive vintage.

90+ The Wine Advocate

This is impressively dense but strikes me as slightly dampened-down and hardened by sulfuring and bottling – Lardiere reports that it was much more supple and expressive in barrel. There is good grip, nutty, low-toned richness, and chalk to the finish.

A spicy, exotic and seductive nose that is wonderfully enveloping is in perfect keeping with the equally seductive, ripe, pure and textured flavors that possess a discreet minerality and superb length. This is very Genevrières and finishes with a notably dry and lengthy backend.


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.


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.
