The 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières bursts from the glass with aromas of green pear, citrus oil, fresh peach, hazelnuts, pastry cream and nutmeg. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with an expansive and textural attack that segues into a racy, tensile core, concluding with a beautifully precise, mineral finish. This is a tour de force Genevrières that will be worth every effort to track down.
