Tasting Notes



  • Sweet Spot Outstanding - 93 points - Burghound: "A beautifully complex, naturally exotic and broad-ranging nose is comprised by notes of Orange pekoe tea, spice Granny Smith apples and a plethora of floral nuances. The beautifully precise mineral-driven flavors also possess really lovely underlying tension before concluding in a bitter lemon inflected and youthfully austere finale. This chiseled effort should also easily reward a decade or more of cellaring. Drink 2029+.”- Allen Meadows, Burghound
  • 93+ points - Wine Advocate: “The 2019 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières has turned out nicely, mingling scents of honeyed pears, mandarin orange, paraffin wax, smoke and toasted nuts in an inviting bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and chiseled, it's bright and chalky, with a long, penetrating finish. Drink 2025-2045.”- William Kelley, Wine Advocate
  • (89-91) points - Vinous: “The 2019 Meursault Genevrières 1er Cru has quite a strong struck match element on the nose, though it seems to dissipate with continued aeration. The palate is well balanced, though I do find the reduction impeding onto the fruit profile so that it articulates more the winemaking technique than the terroir. There’s a good Meursault here, but it is occluded by the winemaking practices at the moment. Drink 2023-2033.”- Neal Martin, Vinous
