1er Cru Genevrières

This names derives from junipers (in French: "génévriers"), bush with thorny leaves and purple berries which grows in the poor and windy field.

A dream vintage which offers generous volumes and superb quality. Water is a major player during the winter which allows the vines to build up their reserves before a particularly hot and dry summer. Favored by a mild spring, flowering took place perfectly with beautiful and numerous clusters. No major climatic incident hampers the growing cycle. The harvest, which was in impeccable health, took place from August 27 to September 15.


Ideally located, facing South-East, the terroir from the part "Dessous", in the continuation of les Charmes. The soil consists of very stony white marl and gives perfect maturity to the grape.

This wine combines finesse of les Perrières with power of les Charmes. A typical wine with aromas of almond, fern, brioche, mellow and concentrated in the mouth with a long persistence.
