I had not tasted the 2005 Meursault 1er Cru les Genevrieres from Dominique Lafon for several years, but it is just as impressive as I remember. Here we have a seductive nose: hints of lemon thyme and sherbet at first, giving way to more tertiary notes, echoing the "hawthorn" remark that I made last time. The palate is clearly very well balanced and harmonious, with a smear of vanilla originating from the oak. There is impressive weight and mineralite developing on the finish that displays great length. It does not quite possess the profundity of the Meursault Caillerets from Jean-Francois Coche served alongside, but that should not detract from this marvellous Meursault.
