NOTE: from degenerating vines planted in 1955 on SO4 rootstock; picked on the early side. ‘Attractively layered aromas offer up notes of spiced pear, acacia blossom, tea and a whiff of wood toast. The delicious, refined and caressing medium-bodied flavors exhibit a bit more minerality on the almost delicate finish that is quite dry, indeed to the point of being slightly edgy. Whether this will round out with a few years of bottle age is difficult to predict but it very well may. Drink: 2022+'

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.
