Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(AG=94) A monopole of the Domaine, consisting of a considerable five hectares, the 2017 Meursault Blagny La Genelottes 1er Cru comes from deep clayey soils that lend freshness and mitigate the stress of dry growing seasons. It is partially aged in lightly toasted 500-liter barrels from Rousseau. The fragrant bouquet of grilled hazelnut, smoke, and yellow flowers unfurls gently in the glass, and the harmonious palate is well balanced with beautifully judged acidity and lightly spiced, revealing a dab of ginger toward a finish of lovely length. A really seductive Meursault.
(RP=94) The 2017 Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru La Genelotte is showing beautifully in bottle, unwinding in the glass with aromas of white flowers, crisp green orchard fruit, citrus zest, struck a match, and oatmeal. Medium to full-bodied, satiny, and incisive, it's tensile and chalky, concluding with a long, elegantly chalky finish.
