Tasting notes

Of a pale yellow colour, the Meursault Genevrières 2015 has a floral nose with fresh almonds and vanilla notes. The mouth is frank, unveiling lemon flavours with nice freshness and persistence in final.

Winemaking notes

Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Côte-d'Or. The perfect south-easterly exposure and the rocky and stony soils contribute greatly to the remarkable finesse of which the wines of Meursault are capable.'Genevrières' comes from 'genévrier' (juniper), a shrub with prickly needles and purple berries which enjoys the limestone soils of Burgundy. Many junipers were replaced by vines, hence the name of the juniper forms part of the name of many parcels of vines. The Meursault 1er Cru "Genevrières" is a great example of a fine Burgundy Chardonnay.
