About this winery
The family-run company of Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly respected negociants-eleveurs in Burgundy. Renowned throughout the world for the quality of its red and white wines, the company has built a reputation for tradition and innovation.
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.
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.
