As part of Genevieve Perrin's family estate when she married him, Didier Darviot is obliged to explain that this is his favourite vineyard on the estate! This is the tightest knit of all his premiers crus. Less opulent, but full of restrained class, this will be a very good 2003 indeed.
Light golden-yellow in hue, 2003 Genevières has a beautifully appealing buttery character.
A truly great wine with wonderfully pure fruit that taking the leading role. Gorgeous intensity on the nose, redolent of spring flowers, citrus and exotic fruit backed by faint whispers of oak. The palate is electric with a stunning peacock's tail of flavours sweeping across the tongue. Aristocratic and very fine.
Citrus scents dominate the nose here. A meursault with impressive clarity of flavour and precision with hints of apricot, melding with minerals in a palate that is brought alive by clean-cut acidity. Really delicious.
With Darviot’s genevrières, richness and nuttiness take centre stage with citrus fruits playing a supporting role. Weightier and richer as one would expect from this vineyard yet energy and vibrancy lift the luscious fruit flavours. Beautifully proportioned and totally composed.
From the steep-sloped Tessons vineyard that overlooks the village of Meursault. Displaying minerality together with traces of exotic and citrus fruits. Precise and focused with a dart of scintillating race. Impressive.
