Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières 2018 - Vincent Girardin

 

AGE OF VINE

60 years old

 

GEOLOGY

The vines are located in the region of Meursault, a village in the south of the Côte de Beaune. The parcel "Les Genevrières" is located south of the village of Meursault, next to the climat "Les Perrières". Soil: a homogeneous clay-limestone soil, rather shallow, dating from the Bathonian period. This substratum is also marked by white marl. Pruning is done in Guyot (Poussard) with various green works (disbudding, trellising, pollarding).

 

VINIFICATION

Hand-picked, sorted on the vines and then in the vat house and finally pressed (pneumatic press) to obtain a slow extraction.

 

BREEDING

Racking after a light settling. The grape must is placed in 228-litre French oak barrels (15% new barrels) in which the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations take place with indigenous yeasts and bacteria. The wine will be aged on fine lees for 18 months. No battonage. One month before bottling, the wine from the different barrels is placed in a stainless steel tank for blending. Racking before fining and light filtration before bottling. Bottling is done according to the lunar calendar.

 

TASTING

Concentrated and elegant, it evokes almond, freshly baked bread, fine spices and roasted dried fruit. The palate is ample and generous, revealing vanilla aromas mixed with citrus notes.

 

METS

Chicken in cream sauce - skate in black butter - risotto with white truffles - Epoisses Serve at 12°c.

I love this site. Whether it's for old wines, or recent ones. The choice of partner estates is impressive, and allocations are sold at fair prices. Ludovic's advice is always excellent.
