Vaunted for its heady aromas, Genevrières is our top Chardonnay from winemaker Pierre Morey. We offer it in two great vintages: 2010 and 2005. The 2010 requires cellaring; the 2005 vintage is ready to drink now.

  • Closed and quiet at the moment, but clearly a fine wine that will reward patience. A nose of subtle oak, butter, and delicate vanilla, but also with intriguing hints of smoky black tea, spice, and mineral. A somewhat piercing acidity and slightly bitter, grippy, tannins on a lingering finish mask a solid core of luscious, buttery fruit that keeps trying to push through, suggesting this wine will be a long-keeper—and one that will handsomely repay long keeping.

    Food pairing: Oysters, lobster, grilled herbed fish

  • The perfumed nose suggests youth while offering honeysuckle, honey, and chalky minerality. The palate is similarly suggestive of honey and white flowers, but also really ripe, bright fruit. The delicious, dry finish just goes on and on. A wine that exudes class and elegance. Expansively structured with a lively backbone of acidity, supple tannins, and opulent fruit that goes almost too far in the direction of ripeness. Still youthful, but already displaying its complexity. Likely to continue to develop through around 2019.

    Food pairing: Serve w/baked chicken in a rich apricot sauce
