The 2016 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières comes from 'Les Genevrières-Dessus' with some vines up to 80 or 90 years old. It is more introspective on the nose compared to Les Charmes; however, it shares the same mineralité with subtle flint-like scents emerging with time and complemented by pressed white flowers. The palate is well balanced with fine tension, focused and tensile with just a touch of reduction toward the finish. This constitutes a stylish expression of the vineyard, a Meursault that probably deserves 3-4 years in bottle.
90-92 points, Wine Advocate, December 2017
"(made in large part from degenerating vines): Aromas of mirabelle, hazelnut and smoky oak suggest a riper, fatter wine. Plusher than the Charmes but still with a rather laid-back character, offering a suave texture and little in the way of easy fruit sweetness (these wines typically finish with a maximum of one gram per liter of residual sugar, according to Mestre). A note of menthol carries through to the slightly phenolic finish. Mestre recommends pairing the Charmes with fish and richer sauces and this Genevrières with white meats."
