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.
(the estate carried out three different élevages for this wine, one of them using Hungarian oak): Bright, light yellow. A note of noble reduction to the aromas of white peach, clove and musky minerals. Supple and juicy, conveying an impression of sucrosité to its dried fruit, almond paste and spice flavours. But this wine is fully dry. Finishes tactile and persistent, with a saline quality and a faint bitter edge.
88-90 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, September 2018.
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.
