Michel Bouzereau Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres 2017
Meursault Genevrieres Premier Cru is “perhaps Bouzereau’s finest” – Jasper Morris.
Regarding the vineyard itself, enevrieres and the upper half of Les Charmes are regarded as the major rivals to Les Perrieres at the top of the Meursault quality tree. And Bouzereau’s won’t let you down:
“Sweet spot. Outstanding. The cool, pure and airy nose is naturally spicy with its essence of acacia blossom, lavender, pear and lemon zest-suffused aromas. There is excellent punch and cuts-like-a-knife delineation to the wonderfully refined medium-bodied flavors that are blessed with an abundance of minerality on the long, chiseled and very dry finish that exhibits a trace of youthful austerity. This is impressively Zen-like.” – Alan Meadows
