More demonstrative out of the gates than the 2017 rendition, Bouchard's 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Genevri?res is showing well from bottle, wafting from the glass with lovely aromas of ripe Anjou pears, citrus oil, fresh pastry and peaches. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and generous, it's charming and expressive, with an ample core of fruit, succulent acids and a nicely defined finish. This will drink well young.
Drink Date: 2020 - 2038

In olden days, the vineyards of this great Meursault must have been surrounded by junipers whose name has lived on. This prestigious appellation was classified as a "Tete de cuvee" as early as 1855 by Dr Lavalle in his renowned book "Histoire et Statistiques de la Vigne et des Grands Vins de la Cote-d'Or". At that time, the terms Premiers Crus and Grands Crus were not in use. Bouchard Pere & Fils owns 2.65 hectares of Meursault Genevrieres, often the first Chardonnays to be harvested on the estate.
