James Suckling

Some complex and exotic fruit here, from two plots, offering ripe peach aromas, as well as yellow citrus and stones. The palate has a smoothly succulent feel with light honey and white almond-nougat notes, across ripe peaches.

Meursault Genevrières 2017

January 2019

90-93 Points

Vinous

Aromas of lemon and lime oil, hazelnut and vanillin oak come across as rich and fully ripe but lively. In a distinctly rich, pliant, almost glyceral style, showing hints of banana and exotic fruits. –ST

Premier Cru Meursault Genevrières 2015

September 2016

89-91

Vinous

Apple, spices and subtle smoky oak on the nose. Round, ripe flavors of peach and pear are lifted by a note of lime blossom. Good energy here from the higher-altitude parcel on chalkier soil. This wine normally shows more minerality with bottle aging, notes Weber, but it's already suave and fine-grained, with good inner-mouth lift. Among the higher-acid 2015 whites here, at 4.2 grams per liter.

Decanter

Broad and lightly ginger-spiced nose; faintly reduced too but it opens up with more and more sweetness. Big and modestly opulent in the mouth, but with enough acidity to support the richness and a lovely ginger-infused mid-palate flavor that is utterly delicious.

2014 Meursault “Genevrières”: (from an incredible 2.7 ha parcel which makes Bouchard the largest owner, surpassing the 2.5 ha of Latour-Giraud). The pungent nose combines reduction and as yet unabsorbed sulfur so be sure to decant this if you’re going to open a bottle in the name of “science”. The palate impression of the wonderfully refined middle weight flavors manages to be at once notably rich while retaining good delineation while simultaneously delivering excellent depth and persistence on the well-balanced finale.

Wine Spectator

Lean and tight, with oak spice wrapped around a core of lemon, apple and stone flavors. Firms up in the end, yet shows the intensity and promise of things to come.

Wine Spectator

This white is Riesling-like, with apple, peach, floral, juniper and stone notes. Elegant yet intense, with a long, lingering aftertaste.
