A deft application of wood sets off notes of exotic tea, spice, citrus and apple scents. There is a really lovely texture to the lightly mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that are rich but refined; indeed the mouth feel is one of finesse, all wrapped in a lingering finale that is supported by citrus-tinged acidity.

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.
