94 points John Gilman
Last year, the Genevrières was my favorite premier cru in the cellars, and it is again absolutely stellar in the 2015 vintage. This is classic Genevrières on the nose (perhaps Meursault’s most elegant wine), wafting from the glass in a fine mix of apple, pear, passion fruit, salty minerality, hazelnut, iodine and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very refined, with a fine core, bright, zest acids, excellent focus and grip and a very, very long, complex and classy finish. (Drink between 2016-2035) (11/2016)

(bottled a week before my visit): Discreet, subtly spiced aromas of apple and lime blossom (Lafon noted that a bottle he opened the day before my visit was more reduced). Wonderfully precise, elegant, gingery wine with a lovely combination of energy and richness. This very pure, classic Genevrières boasts considerable early charm but should age very well. Really saturates the palate and dances on the long, scented finish. (ST) (9/2017)


91-94 points Burghound

This too is quite firmly reduced and about all that can be discerned is a trace of oak toast. The mouth feel of the much finer and less imposingly scaled flavors evidence a lovely minerality on the sappy finish that is both slightly more complex and more persistent. Despite being notably less powerful this is beautifully balanced and should easily repay up to a decade of keeping.  (6/2017)


93 points Decanter Outer quote mark The Genevrières is a supremely pretty wine this year, introduced by notes of crisp orchard fruit, crème pâtissière and white flowers, which lead into a texturally refined, elegant wine with deceptive depth, length and saline minerality through the tangy finish.Drinking Window 2020 - 2040.
