The best of Bouchard's array of Meursaults in 2017, this hails from two parcels, both in Genevrières Dessus; a total of 2.65ha.

Pale, scented and well balanced, it has spicy 15% new wood, good texture and weight, and notes of citrus and beeswax.

Takes a soft-sell approach, with enticing complexity and intensity, set on a light-weight frame. Terrific length. Drink now through 2025. 150 cases imported. — BS

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2019
Youthfully reticent aromas of crisp Anjou pear, blanched almonds, Meyer lemon and hints of praline introduce the 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières, a medium to full-bodied, deep and tensile wine that's impressively...   Youthfully reticent aromas of crisp Anjou pear, blanched almonds, Meyer lemon and hints of praline introduce the 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières, a medium to full-bodied, deep and tensile wine that's impressively concentrated and nicely defined. This confirms its strong showing from barrel; indeed, the wine has gained in tension since I tasted it in December. While it's a little shut down after its recent bottling, it should drink very well with a bit of bottle age.- WK

The bouquet has an intriguing mix of confectionary from the oak plus some dried herbs from the vineyard. This builds very well to the back, a little touch of caramel which will get straightened out before bottling. The final aftertaste has some fresh nectarine, but also some lime blossom notes, so altogether interesting and complex. Tasted: November 2018.

The palate has a smoothly succulent feel with light honey and white almond-nougat notes, across ripe peaches. Drink in the next six years.

The 2017 Meursault Les Genevrières 1er Cru is richer on the nose compared to its peers, offering subtle tropical scents (dried pineapple and white peach) and revealing a touch of spice with time. The palate is ripe and...   The 2017 Meursault Les Genevrières 1er Cru is richer on the nose compared to its peers, offering subtle tropical scents (dried pineapple and white peach) and revealing a touch of spice with time. The palate is ripe and candied on the entry, then slightly viscous and powerful. This is more akin to a Les Charmes than a Genevrières, although it maintains compelling focus on the decadent, praline-tinged finish. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting in Savigny-lès-Beaune. -- Neal Martin
