Otherwise there is an exceptionally fine texture to the medium-bodied flavors that are concentrated yet vibrant before culminating in a lightly mineral-inflected, clean, dry and impeccably well-balanced finish.

Orange oil, stone, hazelnut and a hint of vanilla on the nose; a real essence of Genevrieres. Rich and silky on the palate, but with lovely lift to the flavors of orange, stone fruits and minerals.

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.
