'The 2019 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières has turned out nicely, mingling scents of honeyed pears, mandarin orange, paraffin wax, smoke and toasted nuts in an inviting bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and chiseled, it's bright and chalky, with a long, penetrating finish. Drink 2025-2045.' – William Kelly, Wine Advocate, 93+/100

'A beautifully complex, naturally exotic and broad-ranging nose is comprised by notes of Orange pekoe tea, spice Granny Smith apples and a plethora of floral nuances. The beautifully precise mineral-driven flavors also possess really lovely underlying tension before concluding in a bitter lemon inflected and youthfully austere finale. This chiseled effort should also easily reward a decade or more of cellaring. Drink 2029+.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 93/100

'The 2019 Meursault Genevrières 1er Cru has quite a strong struck match element on the nose, though it seems to dissipate with continued aeration. The palate is well balanced, though I do find the reduction impeding onto the fruit profile so that it articulates more the winemaking technique than the terroir. There’s a good Meursault here, but it is occluded by the winemaking practices at the moment. Drink 2023-2033.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 89-91/100

Producer information Based in Meursault, between the villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Volnay, Henri Boillot is at the epicentre of great winemaking. The Boillots have been tending vines and making wines since 1885. Henri joined in 1975, bought out his siblings in 2005 and his son, Guillaume, joined in 2008. It totals 19 hectares, with roughly equal surfaces of red and white. Included herein, is 4 hectares of the famous Monopole vineyard of Clos de la Mouchère which has developed a cult following. In a very short space of time, they’ve built an extraordinary reputation for the sheer quality of their Burgundy wines, it is no surprise that Allen Meadows thinks this superstar producer ‘has arguably become the finest pure négoce specializing in white Burgundy today’.
