A bouquet of green pear, confit citrus, white flowers and toasted wheat leads into a palate of impressive cut and glossy concentration, with lovely textural elegance and a long, penetrating finish. In 2015, Pierre-Yves' Genevrières seems to have the edge over his lovely Perrières.Drinking Window 2020 - 2045.(WK)
Very pale, bright yellow. Initially very closed nose opened somewhat with air to reveal high-toned orange zest and spice character. Penetrating citrus flavors convey a very suave texture, with a strong impression of acidity giving the wine brilliant delineation for the year. Dense but weightless wine with outstanding mineral energy and length.(ST)
Mild reduction masks the fruit but not the natural spiciness of Genevrières. The classy and sleek middle weight flavors exude a subtle minerality along with saline hints on the moderately complex and persistent finish. This is certainly pretty but doesn't appear to have the same underlying material as the best in the range.
The 2015 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres demanded some time in the glass before it really got going. Still I felt there was just a little reduction that dampened down the fruit profile and terroir expression. The palate is fresh on the entry with orange zest and mandarin notes, improving towards the finish with impressive length and persistence. I just want more personality to develop aromatically.(NM)
