Winemaker Notes

Subtle bouquet of fruit and flowers combined with toasted touches. Refined, full, without any heaviness, with this typical spring of Genevrières. Voluptuous wine.

Pairs well with fish in sauce and foie gras.

Jasper Morris
2.6ha in the upper part for the most part, suitable to pick early, old vines. This has just been racked and fined. Pale lemon and lime. Very elegant nose, much more detail than the Charmes with a swirling weighty of gorgeous ripe fruit at the back, a peachier inflection that does not really impact on the lime infused core of the wine. Succulent finish. Very good indeed.
Barrel Sample: 92-94

James Suckling

A dense Meursault with sliced cooked apples and lemons. Some stone and minerals, too. It’s medium to full body. Creamy, almost chewy texture. Some juniper to the apple character. Drink and enjoy.

Wine Spectator
Buttery peach, pear and oak spice flavors hold your attention as this fleshy white unfolds on the palate. There is just the right amount of acidity to keep this focused and long, showing subtle butterscotch and mineral on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 150 cases imported.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

More demonstrative out of the gates than the 2017 rendition, Bouchard's 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières 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.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Bouchard Père & Fils Meursault Genevrières Premier Cru is attractive and authentic. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows excellent rusticity of ripe fruit and earth in its aromas and flavors. Pair with a rotisserie chicken and a side of Époisses. (Tasted: March 3, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Known to offer a magical balance of smoothness and freshness, Meursault's quality is hard to rival. The village lies in the middle of Côte de Beaune, just south of Volnay. Meursault is said to mean “mouse’s jump” because in the past the plots producing Pinot Noir and those producing Chardonnay were no more than a mouse’s jump from one another. Today the village is almost exclusively Chardonnay. A tiny bit of Pinot Noir is produced here with the best coming from Les Santenots on its northern side near Volnay.

While there are no Grands Crus, Meursault’s numerous acclaimed Premiers Crus can compete with any other top-notch white Burgundy. Some to know are Les Perrières, Les Genevrières, Les Charmes, Le Poruzot, Les Bouchères and Les Gouttes d’Or.

Meursault produces outstanding village level wines as well. In general great Premiers Crus and even village level Meursault (Chardonnay) have enticing aromas of lime peel, tropical fruit, crushed rocks, spice and hazelnut. On the palate there is a wonderful balance of brightness and a seductive length with flavors of white peach, pineapple and citrus.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
