The vines are located on the upper slopes above the Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières appellation. The clay/limestone soil has a subsoil of extremely hard white rock riddled with fissures, which allow the roots to penetrate. The parcel’s southern exposure, coupled with a steady 20% slope, affords the grapes excellent ventilation leading to a harvest that is generally both ripe and healthy. The wine often presents aromas of candied orange (or other citrus fruits) on the nose and in the mouth.
About 20% new oak... White peach and citrus scents on the nose, along with an obvious saline quality... Juicy and energetic on the palate, displaying vibrant lime and mineral flavours along with a riper hint of soft citrus fruits. Nicely rich in the middle palate.

Appealing vanillan richness here, the palate dense, fleshy and textured. Lemon/citrus and nougat notes. Fine, delicate and complex, with a degree of aeriality (if that's a word!). Superb wine, and very approachable right now.

"High-pitched, offering toasted sweet spice, lime blossom, citronella, mineral and nut oil aromas and flavors. Well-defined, intense and taut, with a stingy finish for now, but the potential is there. Best from 2018 through 2024."

Meursault Blancs have heady aromas of bitter or dried almonds, leaves, hot bread crusts, and russet apples. On the palate they are quite substantial, with a soft mouthfeel that is almost unctuous. The finish is very long.
