In olden days, the vineyards of this great Meursault must have been surrounded by junipers whose name has lived on. This prestigious appellation was classified as a “Tête de cuvée” as early as 1855 by Dr Lavalle in his renowned book “Histoire et Statistiques de la Vigne et des Grands Vins de la Côte-d’Or”. At that time, the terms Premiers Crus and Grands Crus were not in use. Bouchard Père & Fils owns 2.65 hectares of Meursault Genevrières, often the first Chardonnays to be harvested on the estate.
Subtle bouquet of fruit and flowers combined with toasted hints. Full yet
refined, without the slightest heaviness and with the liveliness typical of Les Genevrières. A
voluptuous wine. Good ageing potential.
