Louis Jadot, Meursault Genevrieres 1999

The Meursault Genevrieres 1999 from Louis Jadot is really singing at this stage. In the bouquet quite complex matured yellow fruits with notes of apple, hazelnuts and a buttery hint with a citrus twist. On the palate quite rich but fresh fruit, beautifully balanced by a fine acidity and the lovely minerality from the Genevriere vineyard. It’s quite long with a quite racy finish with a fresh citrus note. Indeed nice to have a non-oxed 1999 – this vintage really have a beautiful inner balance and harmoni. A beautiful wine … white wine of the evening.
