Here the nose displays the natural exoticism of a classic Genevrières with its spicy aromas of citrus, pear and Asian style tea. There is good richness and generosity but also a lovely sense of underlying tension where the strong minerality adds lift to the precise, textured, dry and very clean finish. I like the brisk acidity as it both refreshes and shapes the palate impression.
The 2012 Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières has a bold, intense bouquet laden with lime flower, candied orange peel, limestone and fig aromas that soar from the glass. The palate is extremely well balanced with notes of apricot and white peach, later a smudge of marmalade and an almost exotic finish that could revivify the most fatigued of mouths. Wow. This might be Coche-Dury’s most compelling contribution to the vintage. This is nothing short of stunning - grand cru in all but name. (NM)
