DescriptionDomaine Latour-Giraud Les Genevrieres, Meursault Premier Cru, France 2007
WINE ADVOCATELatour’s 2007 Meursault Genevrieres appears as an ideal marriage between the low-toned stoniness and nuttiness of the Poruzots and the salinity and primary juiciness of the Narvaux, which makes sense in terms of location, too. Toasted grain, salt spray, and chalk dust in the nose lead to a palate of both nutty richness and citric kick. This is at once creamy in texture and vivacious. Sweet hints of nutmeg and marzipan add to the allure of a long, luscious finish. I would anticipate close to a decade of pleasure from a wine that seems to help confirm a particular aptitude in this vintage for this site, of which Latour owns more than 15%. (It’s such a happy surprise when one of a grower’s top wines is also his or her most plentiful!) I’d plan on at least 6-8 years of fascination and pleasure from this.
VINOUSBright yellow. Fresh, perfumed nose offers orange oil and sexy vanillin oak. Silky, suave and fruity, with a captivating sugar/acid balance and a sexy orange oil flavor. This is considerably more refined than the 2008 Genevrieres, and its orange, vanilla and hazelnut flavors are classic for the vineyard. Finishes with terrific cut.
