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.
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.
