2018 Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrieres, Domaine Arnaud Tessier

Vintage Description

Catherine Tessier took us through the tasting. Their wines have a creamy texture and are enormously appealing. They are in a more gentle, modern style than the big, fat Meursaults of old. 'Arnaud and Catherine Tessier are the forces behind this quietly ambitious 7.5-hectare Meursault domaine, an estate blessed with choice parcels in some of the commune's finest sites. Rigorously worked soils, moderate yields and long, slow élevage in mostly used barrels are the rudiments of the approach. The result is concentrated but tensile wines that unfold slowly and reward bottle age. I look forward to revisiting more of their wines from bottle in the coming year' Wiliam Kelley, Robertparker.com


Tasting Notes

Aidan - Very pretty, fine and elegant. Beautiful integration and texture. Satin fruit and so fine, full of charm and inviting satin texture. Great build to the saline finish. Long and silky. Very fine detail.
