Vincent Girardin Meursault Genevieres 1er Cru 2017

Red Wines

Out of stock
From degenerating vines planted in 1955 on SO4 rootstock; picked on the early side.
Brighter yellow than the Charmes-Dessus, as well as a touch lighter and greener. More elegant on the nose too, offering scents of musky lime oil, wild herbs, white pepper and menthol (this fruit was harvested at the beginning, followed on the next day by Meursault Charmes and Perrières ). Offers a lighter touch on the palate than the Charmes-Dessus, with citrus and floral flavors complicated by a hazelnut quality. Nicely combines the roundness of Charmes with the tension of Perrières --and more about minerality than ripe yellow fruits. I particularly liked the long, rising whiplash of a finish.

PRODUCER

The vines are located in the Meursault Village area, in the south of the Côte de Beaune. \"Les Genevrières” plot is in the south of the Meursault Village, next to \"Les Perrières” plot. The soil is clay and limestone. The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted out when picking the grapes. They are lightly pressed in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a gentle extraction of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 228 liters (25% of new oak) for a wild yeast fermentation.
