Bouchard Pere et Fils Meaursault Genevrieres 2015


Côte De Beaune-Burgundy, France 750ml |13.5% ABV  Grape Variety: Chardonnay
93 points Wine Spectator

  Lush and creamy, featuring peach, lemon cake, honey and spice flavors. Balanced and expressive, with a long, smooth aftertaste that evokes hints of orange and mineral. Best from 2019 through 2027.  (8/2017)

  Bouchard’s domaine includes 6.5 acres of Genevrières, a premier cru at the south end of Meursault where the east-southeast exposure contributes to the early ripening of the fruit. This is a powerful wine that needs time in a decanter for the flesh to completely fill out the structure of the alcohol. At first it feels a little light in the middle for all its clay-limestone intensity and butterscotch weight. A few hours later, its fresh white-peach flavors have enriched the earthy elements, creating brisk, cool harmonies. Ripe and full, this should be at its best five or six years from the vintage.   (4/2018)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

  A naturally exotic nose features notes of spiced tea, citrus blossom and a deft application of oak. There is good richness but also a lovely sense of underlying energy suffusing the refined and mineral-driven flavors that deliver fine persistence. This should be approachable young but also reward 4 to 7 years of cellaring.   (6/2017)

91 points Vinous

  Pale, bright yellow. Musky aromas of lemon zest, lime, spices and minerals; a step up in energy from the preceding wines and higher-pitched. Penetrating, citrussy wine with brisk supporting mineral spine energizing the middle palate and extending the firm, rising finish. Delivers a lovely combination of density and pliancy but is still a bit compressed in the early going. Finishes fresh and quite long. Really lovely fruit here, as well as enough saline minerality and brisk acidity for mid-term aging. This premier cru nicely avoids the excesses of the year. (ST)   (9/2017)

Subtle bouquet of fruit and flowers combined with toasted hints. Full yet refined, without the slightest heaviness and with the liveliness typical of Les Genevrieres. A voluptuous wine. Good ageing potential.
Genevrieres is a premier-cru-rated climate of the Meursault appellation in the 

Côte de Beaune.  It is planted entirely to Chardonnay and is one of Meursault's larger and better-known vineyard sites, located at the southern end of the commune. Genevrieres Premier Cru wine tasting notes commonly cite hints of butter, almonds and grilled hazelnuts alongside the finer citrus-fruit and mineral elements.
