An exceptionally pretty nose grudgingly reveals its aromas of ripe white orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in citrus, exotic tea and spice nuances. There is good richness and verve to the nicely detailed and overtly mineral-suffused medium weight flavors that offer good to very good depth and persistence.

91-93Stephen Tanzer

...aromas of lemon, lime and powdered stone, with riper peach and apricot scents...gentle, distinctly creamy style and balanced from the start, already conveying sexy sweetness to its fruit-driven flavors of stone fruits and lime flower. Finishes very smooth and long.

16.5Jancis Robinson

Subtle aroma of dusty citrus and more piercing and intense on the palate. Ripe lemon shot through with mouth-watering freshness.


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.
