Tasting Notes

**Note: from 40+ year old vines**
A naturally exotic nose displays notes of spiced tea, white flowers, citrus and essence of pear. There is a notably finer mouth feel to the more refined and better detailed medium weight flavors that possess notably more minerality on the clean, dry and moderately tight finale. This is class in a glass and should drink well after only 4 to 5 years of cellar time if that's your preference.

Score: 93Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (67), June 2017

Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting, the 2014 Meursault 1er Cru les Genevrières was packed full of sulfur on the nose although behind this lies intense fruit that will blossom with two or three years in bottle (the longer the better). The palate is well balanced with slightly honeyed fruit, a fine thread of acidity and great presence on the finish. You cannot deny the substance and length of this 2014 from Dominique Lafon, a wine with ambition. All this Meursault requires is more time. Drink Date 2020 - 2038
