2012 Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru La Genelotte, Domaine Comtesse Bernard de Cherisey

The product of vines planted on deeper clay soils and quite unlike its Puligny cousins, La Genelotte exhibits a very fresh and lifted nose, with notes of aniseed, mint and crushed chalk to bring complexity to the core of citrus fruit. On the palate the citrus fruit is accompanied by a very savoury, pithy and saline edge on the finish; this is very complex and should age very well indeed.

2012 Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru La Genelotte, Domaine Comtesse Bernard de Cherisey
Domaine Comtesse Bernard de Cherisey

From a new winery in the hamlet of Blagny in the hills that overlook Meursault and Puligny, owner Laurent crafts wines that balance an inherent richness with the grippy minerality for which the wines of this area are so well known. Laurent is also the rightfully proud owner of what must be the Côte d’Or’s largest spittoon. Often overlooked in the UK, overseas merchants snap up his wines, most notably the American importer and connoisseur Kermit Lynch.
