Parker calls this domaine “an estate whose wines I recommend with much enthusiasm” and Les Genevrières is one of Meursault’s finest Premiers Crus, always hard to source. Their superb 2016 is a masterpiece of minerally vivacity, depth and ripeness.

Beyond the Label
Lean and precise with stony minerality plus creamy stone fruit
Oak spice lift with a hint apricot, pear and bright, citrus minerality
The Monnier family have been winemakers ‘from father to son’ since 1720. Whether from Meursault, Volnay, Pommard or Beaune, their wines bear all the qualities and subtleties of the terroir from which they are harvested. This magnificent 2016 is from one of the top three Premiers Crus of Meursault. It’s one of the most southerly, on southeast facing slopes, with particularly stony soils, and the grapes reach excellent ripeness whilst still retaining a superb grip of minerality. The wine is carefully handcrafted by Jean-Claude Monnier and his son Nicolas. It has all the golden richness you’d expect of a Meursault, with a taut line of freshness. The lush spice tones gained from judicious oak ageing will become more overt with further ageing.
"Good news: 2016 is a seriously delicious vintage"
Jancis Robinson MW Wine Critic
