2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Meursault 1er Cru "Les Genevrieres"

SKU #1331709 94 points Decanter

 A bouquet of green pear, confit citrus, white flowers and toasted wheat leads into a palate of impressive cut and glossy concentration, with lovely textural elegance and a long, penetrating finish. In 2015, Pierre-Yves' Genevrières seems to have the edge over his lovely Perrières.Drinking Window 2020 - 2045.(WK)  (3/2017)

94 points Vinous

 Very pale, bright yellow. Initially very closed nose opened somewhat with air to reveal high-toned orange zest and spice character. Penetrating citrus flavors convey a very suave texture, with a strong impression of acidity giving the wine brilliant delineation for the year. Dense but weightless wine with outstanding mineral energy and length.(ST)  (9/2017)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Mild reduction masks the fruit but not the natural spiciness of Genevrières. The classy and sleek middle weight flavors exude a subtle minerality along with saline hints on the moderately complex and persistent finish. This is certainly pretty but doesn't appear to have the same underlying material as the best in the range.  (6/2017)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres demanded some time in the glass before it really got going. Still I felt there was just a little reduction that dampened down the fruit profile and terroir expression. The palate is fresh on the entry with orange zest and mandarin notes, improving towards the finish with impressive length and persistence. I just want more personality to develop aromatically.(NM)  (4/2017)

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
Specific Appellation:


- The town of Meursault is a prosperous village, with a Gothic town hall and narrow winding streets. It produces a small amount of red wine, but is justly famous for its whites. Although it has no Grand Cru vineyards, its Premiers Crus are justly famous, particularly Charmes, Poruzots, Perrières and Genevrières. A good Meursault has concentration, grip and backbone, in addition to its soft and rich fruit.
