Bouchard Pere et Fils Meursault Genevrieres 1er Cru 2018

In the olden days, the vineyards of this great Meursault must have been surrounded by
junipers whose name has lived on. This prestigious appellation was classified as a
"Tête de cuvée" as early as 1855 by Dr Lavalle in his renowned book "Histoire et
Statistiques de la Vigne et des Grands Vins de la Côte-d'Or". At that time, the terms
Premiers Crus and Grands Crus were not in use. Bouchard Père & Fils owns 2.65
hectares of Meursault Genevrières, often the first Chardonnays to be harvested on
the estate.
