Olivier Leflaive : Meursault 1er cru "Genevrières" 2011

Burgundy - Meursault - White - 13.5° Olivier Leflaive Olivier Leflaive 2011 E204/11
  • Parker : 90

A superbly concentrated white wine from Meursault 1er Cru

The name of the parcel "Genevrières" originates from the junipers, thorny shrubs once planted in these soils, which are poor and exposed to the wind. The Meursault 1er Cru "Genevrieres" 2011 by Olivier Leflaive is a single-varietal Chardonnay white wine produced in the appellation of Meursault 1er Cru. Aged 35 years on average, the vines benefit from clay-limestone soils, rich in stony white marl. The wine is aged in oak barrels (30% in new barrels) for an average of 17 months.

The Meursault 1er Cru "Genevrières" 2011 by Olivier Leflaive proves to be fine and powerful. The nose produces aromas of almonds, ferns and brioche. The wine is soft and offers a good concentration in the mouth. Superb aromatic persistence. To be consumed before 2021.

 



Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. Finally, here is a nose that says "Genevrières" with fine delineation and minerality, poised and vigorous with engaging citrus lemon and limestone scents. The palate on Olivier Leflaive's Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières 2011 is fresh and vibrant with well-integrated oak lending roundness and depth. The acidity is well judged and it builds in the mouth toward a vibrant, spicy finish that leaves the mouth tingling.
