Subtle, characteristic bouquet with an oaky note. Full yet refined, without the slightest heaviness and with the liveliness typical of Les Genevrieres. A voluptuous wine. Good ageing potential.
Vinous 91 points - Pale, bright yellow. Sexy, musky aromas of stone fruits, apple, buttery lees and nutty oak. Sweet, plush and easygoing, with stone fruit flavors accented by oak spices. This round, ripe Meursault has sound supporting structure.
Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2013 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres has a candied nose and, just like Les Gouttes d’Or, there is a distinctive licorice/anis scent that is a little distracting. The palate is better with sour lemon and a touch of white peach on the entry mixed with praline and hazelnut, finishing with a spicy note that lingers nicely. Fine. (Dec 2014)
