The 2017 Meursault Les Genevrières 1er Cru is taut and crisp on the nose, nicely focused and poised, with well integrated oak; the aromatics feel harmonious and complex. The palate is well balanced with a saline entry, and very citric in style. Plenty of ginger and lemongrass furnish the finish with admirable length. Excellent and very elegant. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting in Savigny-lès-Beaune. (Neal Martin, Vinous, August 2021)

Fairly oxidized. Purchased from a good retail store in Berkeley. Not the wine I hoped it would be. It was good, tho, don't get me wrong.

The best Meursault I've tasted in AGES. £50 but worth every penny.

Round chewy brioche, toasted hazelnuts, lemon curd, marzipan, green apple. Delicious with a fresh summer salad and baked salmon.

2017 was much better. 2016 was lacking in acid
