Tasting Notes

94 Points James Suckling
Here is a full-bodied and rich but not massive Meursault that will please fans of this appellation and regular wine-drinkers alike! Plenty of ripe citrus, particularly orange, with a touch of melted butter and grapefruit peel (the zest and pith) on the ample palate, with a touch of fresh nuts at the long, creamy finish. Just enough acidity to keep all this right on track. From organically grown grapes.

91-93 Points Vinous
he 2020 Meursault Les Genevrières 1er Cru has just a touch of reduction on the nose, but there is clearly good fruit concentration here, a light waxy aromas emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with a honeyed texture, lightly spiced, riper than the Charmes but without quite the same delineation.

92-94 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2020 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières wafts from the glass with aromas of citrus oil, crisp Anjou pear, hazelnuts, white flowers and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with an ample core of fruit, terrific concentration, bright acids and a long, saline finish.

91-93 Points Allen Meadows
A ripe and naturally exotic nose features notes of Asian-style tea, anise, white peach and a whiff of fennel. The relatively generously proportioned medium weight flavors exude a subtle bead of minerality on the very dry and youthfully austere finish that also possesses a touch of bitter citrus character. Lovely juice and this is really quite classy. Outstanding!
