François Mikulski 2015 Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières

Rarely do the Genevrières succumb to the imperialism of the Charmes, but that is the case in this vintage. More earthly and less dreamlike, more sensual and less lingering, Genevrières 2015 tastes like a vintage from the first growths of Meursault. Instead: An elegant nose, white fruits with predominantly pear, delicate notes of citrus, clementine perhaps, flowers, honey, nougat, fresh butter, icing sugar, praline, Isigny caramel and salted caramel, turmeric and barley sugar. Sensual and silky on the palate, poached fruit with candied fruit, the soil and fruit intertwining. The finish is long and persistent but we can feel it, the wine needs time, at least five years before reaching a perfect balance. By ageing with just 20% in new barrels and the rest in barrels that have held one, two or three wines, we preserve the unique character of the terroir.
