Côte de Beaune|
Level: Premier Cru
|AOC: Meursault Genevrières 1er Cru|
Great terroirs always reveal their truth! To a shining robe follows a complex nose of yellow stone fruits, peony, lys. A wide and rich mouth keeps the show going with precision. Beautiful.
Let’s pay tribute to this wine a crispy sea-bass fillet with grilled fennel, a papillote of trout or some old mountain cheese (cow or ewe)
This Cuvée pays homage to Philippe le Bon Duke of Burgundy (1419- 1467), who gave his backing and authority to Chancellor Nicolas Rolin, during the latter’s establishment of the Hôtel-Dieu, from 1443. It is regularly one of the finest whites, and fiercely contested at auction. The Genevrières dessous section was half planted in 1978, half in 2001, with the dessus section dating from 2009.
