As the largest village in the Cote de Beaune, Meursault has a winemaking history dating back to Roman times. Often seen as the richest and most rounded of the main white appellations in Burgundy, there are still stylistic differences across the large area. While there are no Grand Cru vineyards in Meursault, three 1er Cru plots stand apart as genuine rivals to the best whites in Burgundy; Perrieres, Charmes, and Genevrieres.
A notably exotic nose features exceptionally fresh and pure aromas of various white flowers, spice elements, black tea and citrus nuances. Here too there is a wonderfully refined mouth feel to the more obviously mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that possess ample punch and detail on the balanced and dry finish.

Tasted blind at the Burgnudy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. Finaly, here is a nose that says "Genevrieres" with fine delineation and minerality, poised and vigorous with engaging citrus lemon and limestone scents. The palate on Olivier Leflaive's Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières 2011 is fresh and vibrant with well-integrated oak lending roundness and depth. The acidity is well judged and it builds in the mouth toward a vibrant, spicy finish that leaves the mouth tingling.
