Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2015 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières, which is a relatively new contract for Drouhin having incepted around three years ago, has a struck flint, limestone bouquet that offers sea spray/marine scents with time. The palate is very well balanced with superb energy, vibrant and tensile, with a lovely saline finish. Watch out for this once in bottle, because it has tons of potential, but may surpass the Les Perrières in the long-term.

(Meursault “Genevrières”- Maison Joseph Drouhin) The 2015 Meursault “Genevrières” from Maison Joseph Drouhin is one of my favorite white wines in their lineup this year, as the bottle offers up gorgeous complexity and breed on both the nose and palate. The bouquet is an absolutely classic mix of apple, passion fruit, iodine, salty soil tones, hazelnut and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is very pure, full-bodied, focused and suave on the attack, with a fine core, very good framing acids and fine lift on the long and vibrant finish. This is not overly racy in personality, but it is so impeccably well-balanced that it should age nicely, but it is going to be very hard to resist in its sparkling youth. (Drink between 2016-2035)

Here too a deft touch of wood allows the ever-so-slightly exotic and clearly ripe floral, pear, apple and citrus aromas to shine. There is a beguiling mouth feel to the very rich yet classy and refined medium weight flavors that exhibit a subtle minerality on the lingering and markedly dry finish in the context of what is typical for the 2015 vintage.
