Product:

Chateau Genot-Boulanger, Les Boucheres, Meursault 1er Cru, Burgundy, 2010

Producer:

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Saline but oaky nose, ripe grapefruit. Medium-bodied, a touch sweet, far less mineral than the nose, though it has some tangy acidity. Despite the alcohol, it lacks power and persistence and finishes a bit flat. Moderate length, and lacks some drive.

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Pale yellow, with lots of smoky oak on the nose and yellow fruits. The palate is rich and full of sweet fruits, maybe some potential.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Meursault 1er Cru 2010

Floral, white and yellow fruits. Dry honey and a hint of fresh almonds, natural ripeness on the palate. Good, succulent fruit and nice acidity to lift it, but quite a broad style and lacks the minerality, and complexity of others. Good for early/mid-term.
