2019 Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières, Michel Bouzereau

2019 Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières, Michel Bouzereau

This is one of Meursault’s finest vineyards, shared amongst some of its greatest growers. In the hands of Jean-Baptiste Bouzereau, the palate is bursting with energy. There is such density and persistence on the palate, whilst the nose remains relatively tightly coiled, with much more to give as it unfolds with time. This should make a wonderful mature white Burgundy, if you have the patience.

Tasting notes

The 2019 Meursault Genevrières 1er Cru is much more closed on the nose compared to the Les Charmes-Dessus, offering scents of lemon curd, patisserie, clementines and linseed oil. Quite complex but tightly wound. The palate is well balanced with impressive depth. There is a lot of concentration and richness here, though the acidity effortlessly counterbalances this. Ginger and light rhubarb notes toward the long finish complete an excellent Genevrières.
