Knockout Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres from Domaine Latour-Giraud

2013 or 2014? Two serious vintages for the Meursault Genevrieres
 
With 2.5 hectares of Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres Latour-Giraud are the largest owners of this prime site. Their vines were planted in 1951, 1972 and 1978 and are now producing outstanding grapes which translate into tremendously complex wine.
 
A quick glance at Burghound shows that Latour-Giraud have the top Meursault Genevrieres (Cuvee des Pierre) and the equal second top wine (the not-so-standard "standard" cuvee) in 2013. Burghound has not published reviews the 2014's yet but is universally regarded as one of the greatest white Burgundy vintages for a long time.

If you are a lover of white Burgundy with zip and complexity I wholeheartedly recommend both the 2013 and 2014 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres from Domaine Latour-Giraud. The 2013's are in stock and until the end of the week you can buy them at our original Pre Arrival Prices and save 15%. The 2014's have not yet shipped and are available at Pre Arrival Prices which save you 15%.

Latour-Giraud Genevrieres Burghound: (from 40+ year old vines from a huge 2.5 ha parcel in Genevrières Dessus). Like several of the wines in the range in 2013 this is distinctly restrained where the aromas of white and yellow orchard fruit, acacia blossom and jasmine tea are subtly marked by a certain exoticism. The equally restrained middle weight flavors brim with both ample minerality and plenty of dry extract that really coat the palate yet the balanced finish is notably dry with terrific intensity and persistence. This is a knockout and well-worth investigating. A Sweet Spot Wine. 93 Points

Latour-Giraud Genevrieres Vinous - Stephen Tanzer: 
Pale yellow. Very rich, oily aromas of fresh apricot, spices, vanilla and toast convey excellent purity and depth. Plush but bright in the mouth, displaying terrific energy and lift to its orchard fruit and spice flavors. Very densly packed and classic. Finishes with a touch of tannic firmness and excellent lift. A real essence of Meursault. 93-95 Points
