2019 Domaine Ballot Millot Meursault Genevrieres Premier Cru
A spicy and naturally exotic nose freely offers up notes of tea, white flowers and pretty essence of pear wisps. There is again terrific cut and intensity to the even more mineral-driven medium weight flavors that are shaped by bright and firm acidity on the sappy and hugely long finish. This is quite dense and unusually powerful for Genevrières. In a word, wonderful. Drink 2029+.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
The 2019 Meursault Les Genevrières 1er Cru, which comes from 85-year-old vines, has an expressive, almost Charmes-like bouquet, wild honey mixed with heather and hints of chamomile. The oak is neatly enmeshed. The palate is very well balanced, one of the most elegant and poised contributions from this Premier Cru, offering touches of orange pith and white peach mixed with hazelnut toward the finish. The kind of Meursault that makes you smile like a Cheshire cat. Drink 2023 - 2040.
Neal Martin - Vinous
From 85 year old vines. Pale primrose again, with an attractive pure classy balanced and very typical bouquet. Really intense and very well balanced. Long stylish finish with the volume of the vintage very well harnessed. Excellent acid integration.
