Chavy-Chouet Meursault Premier Cru Genevrieres
Domaine Chavy-Chouet
France - Burgundy - Bourgogne Chardonnay

The Genevrières parcels are located in the heart of Meursault's southern premiers crus. "Genevrieres" takes its name from the former presence of the juniper bushes which covered its slope, and it is sometimes said that the tang of this aromatic berry can be detected in the wine.

Fruity flavors and typical nutty nuances.

2018 Chavy-Chouet Meursault Premier Cru Genevrieres - 94 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2018 Meursault Genevrières 1er Cru comes from a small parcel planted in 1943 that tends toward millerandé during the growing season. It has a lovely bouquet, very well defined, with scents of hazelnut, white flowers, clementine and quince. The palate is supremely well balanced with a killer line of acidity, precise and mineral-driven. There is impressive detail and concentration on the finish. Outstanding. - Neal Martin"
