The Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières Chardonnay is rich, powerful and mineral.

Domaine Arnaud Tessier is a rising star of Meursault’s producers. The Domaine is making refined and complex Chardonnays from the village’s best located vineyards. The Meursault 1er Cru “Les Genevrières” is one of the best 1er Crus in Meursault.

The wine shows great richness, hints of butter, almonds, apricot and delicate flavours of peach. The wine is powerful and elegant. It can be paired with seafood, lobster, foie gras, white meat and cheeses. You can drink it now by decanting 45 minutes before serving, or you can cellar it for eight to ten years. 100% Chardonnay.

"This Meursault 1er Cru “Les Genevrières” is rich, complex and demonstrates an outstanding elegance. The length of flavours on your palate is endless. This wine is rare and it will excite a lot of wine connoisseurs."

At Domaine Tessier, Catherine and Arnaud grow their vineyards organically. They ensure their vines are growing concentrated, ripe and healthy grapes. They employ only light ploughings, leave long branches on the vines and optimize the airflow through the canopy by removing leaves prior to harvest. After the hand harvest, grapes are pressed in a gentle pneumatic press. The juice is pumped into stainless steel vats and undergoes alcoholic fermentation. The process is as natural as possible and without introduction of external yeasts. The maturation is done in French oak barrels for twelve months – with only a few new oak barrels introduced – to preserve the beautiful fresh flavour of the wine and bring extra weight and complexity.
