Tasting notes

93 Points - The Wine Advocate

"The 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières is also performing well, displaying scents of pear, peach, white flowers and hazelnuts, framed by a subtle touch of reduction. This is medium to full-bodied, tensile and elegantly muscular, with chalky structuring dry extract, lively acids and a long, palate-staining finish. Like the Charmes, this will reward patience. This hails from two parcels, one in each of the two climates of Genevrières." Robert Parker

More about the Producer

  • Vincent Girardin

    Vincent Girardin

    His reds are of consistently high quality, with the emphasis being on purity of fruit and smooth, supple tannins. However, it is with whites that he really excels, producing a range of wines which are characterised by their depth of fruit and exquisite balance. These whites are extremely approachable when young but the top crus benefit from 4-5 years of bottle ageing.

    The reds are made including stems where possible, if ripe and healthy enough, and minimal handling during cuvaison: no punching down at all. As with the whites there is little reliance on new wood.
