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.
TASTING NOTES: 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.
