Meursault-Genevrières 1er Cru Cuvée Baudot 2019
Côte de Beaune|
Level: Premier Cru
|AOC: Meursault Genevrières 1er Cru|
A pale bright clear primrose, the bouquet shows some delicious ripe pear fruit, but the underlying lacy detail of fine Genevrières is sitting clearly underneath. A little touch of warmth behind, with good persistence of the fruit.
Oysters, scallops, a nice cheese platter (beaufort or Swiss mountains cow cheese, goat or ewe cheese)
Félix Baudot, born 1796, was a great collector of paintings, stained glass, etc.. These objects were sold by public auction, all proceeds coming to the Hospices de la Charité. This Cuvée comes in equal parts from Genevrières dessous and dessus. The vines are all fully mature or ancient. The youngest (23% of the Cuvée) date from 1979, all the others being older – from 1944, 1948, 1956 and 1964.
