Winemaker's Notes

"Bright, pure aromas of lemon, lime, minerals and ginger. At once sweet and precise, with lovely sugar/acid snap to the flavors of citrus peel, spices and flowers. A very perfumed and crisp wine with a long, aromatic, firmly stony aftertaste. Classic rather than exotic: I love this wine's rising finish."
-International Wine Cellar 92-94

Critical Acclaim

"Bouchard’s 2006 Meursault Genevrieres smells of coconut, litchi, candied lime, and brown spices. Combining doughy substantiality, polished richness of texture and luscious citricity, it finishes with formidable persistence of exotic, extroverted spice, citrus, and tropical fruits. I suspect it might evolve more rapidly than the corresponding Gouttes d’Or. 92-93 points"
93 Points

"A very deftly wooded nose, where it's clear that the oak treatment will be rapidly integrated, sets off pure, expressive and equally exotic fruit aromas that are even spicier while serving as a dramatic introduction for the detailed, focused and almost painfully intense flavors that possess a tangy and driving finish that does a slow build from the mid-palate on back. A classic Genevrières that should age beautifully."
93 Points

"Oak spice, buttery pastry, hazelnut and lime combine to seduce the palate in this alluring white, which is seamless from start to finish and leaves a lush impression with vanilla tones. Drink now through 2016. 180 cases imported."
92 Points

"Bright straw-yellow. Pungent, high-pitched aromas of white peach, lime and violet. Suave on entry, then juicy and aromatic in the middle palate, with lovely floral lift to the flavors of white peach and lime. Intensely flavored but subtle and delicate, especially for the vintage. Today this dry, vibrant wine comes across as longer and firmer than the Charmes, and considerably less oaky."
