Residual SO2 is sufficient to dominate the nose today. Marvelously energetic and intensely mineral-driven flavors also possess excellent cut that characterizes the bitter lemon and saline-inflected finish that delivers seriously fine length. This chiseled effort is almost Chablis-like and will require at least a few years of bottle age first. *sweet spot, outstanding*
Lean and tight, with oak spice wrapped around a core of lemon, apple and stone flavors. Firms up in the end, yet shows intensity and promise of things to come. (BS)
Bright, pale, slightly cloudy yellow. Apple and a note of Christmas spices on the nose. Rich, plush and deep. Really spreads out in the mouth without leaving any impression of heaviness, with the dried apricot fruit complemented by oak spices. Finishes with rising length and a slight phenolic edge but appears to have the middle-palate sweetness to support it. (ST)
The 2016 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières comes from two parcels, one on the slope and the other at higher altitude. It has a tightly wound bouquet with hints of mint and licorice lurking in the background. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, taut and linear, not a flamboyant Genevrières and just needing to manifest more character on the finish. Give this two or three years in bottle before opening. (NM)
