The 2012 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres was showing just a little reduction, which made the aromatics difficult to ascertain. The palate is more expressive: compact and slightly waxy in texture with plenty of spicy fruit, hints of cumin toward the spicy, almost feisty finish that fans out with great conviction. This should be attractive once bottled, but the nose needs to settle down. (NM)
Bright pale yellow. Reticent nose hints at orange zest, peach and marzipan. Ripe, deep and rather powerful; a bit overbearing today and in need of time to burn off some of its baby fat. Colin spoke of "the less beneficial effect of greater ripeness in precocious sites in 2012 than in 2013." In an awkward stage today. (ST) 91+
Strong reduction. The mouth feel here is slightly finer than that of the Charmes with a bit more minerality as well to the relatively broad-shouldered flavors that are shaped and supported by a firm acid spine on the impressively long finish. This is more refined but not quite as complex though both wines are lovely and worth your consideration. *Outstanding*
