"In a word, wonderful"
2019 Ballot Millot Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières

Posted by Ian McFadden

Simply put, Ballot Millot's 2019s are absolutely amazing.

Burghound writes: "They are knock-out good." 

For me, the sweet spot of the superb lineup is the 1er Cru Les Genevrières.

Along with Perrières and Charmes, Genevrières forms the holy trinity of Meursault 1er Crus. The quick summary is that Charmes is known for its grandeur, Perrières for its refined, punchy mineral focus, and Genevrières, to some extent, falls in the middle. Many writers put Genevrières as a close second to Perrières.

The 2019 Genevrières is finely calibrated. It delivers a thundering mineral length combined with a beautiful cut. There's a really nice depth and finessed lift. 

Ballot-Millot has become an essential part of our white Burgundy program. The 2019 Genevrières is a homerun. I'm happy to offer our modest parcel.

2019 Ballot Millot Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres

750 ml


Burghound: "A spicy and naturally exotic nose freely offers up notes of tea, white flowers and pretty essence of pear wisps. There is again terrific cut and intensity to the even more mineral-driven medium weight flavors that are shaped by bright and firm acidity on the sappy and hugely long finish. This is quite dense and unusually powerful for Genevrières. In a word, wonderful."
