Meursault has 17 Premiers Crus, of which the highest-regarded are Les Charmes, Les Genevrières and Les Perrières (many regard these three as the unofficial 'Grand Crus' of Meursault). The 16 hectares of Les Genevrières sit towards the south of Meursault; the name Genevrière literally means 'Juniper', from the many Juniper bushes that lined the hills in the past. Soils here are extremely stony, and the aspect is southeasterly and therefore sunny, conferring intensity and richness in the wines. The grapes were all handpicked into small boxes, which ensured the berries remained intact and healthy for their arrival at the winery.
David Moret Meursault 1er Cru `Les Genevrières` is made on a very limited volume, this is a great example of how exciting Meursault can be. A very balanced and rather elegant wine, it offers great balance between tropical fruit aromas and a poised acidity. A slight creaminess leaves a mouthwatering finish.
