*En Primeur 2019 In Bond Pricing* “...Charles Ballot is producing serious wines, old-fashioned in the best sense, that deserve to be better known.” William Kelley, Wine Advocate, February 2020
Jasper Morris, MW, Inside Burgundy: 2019, Meursault Genevrières 1er cru. Score: 92-96. "From 85 year old vines. Pale primrose again, with an attractive pure classy balanced and very typical bouquet. Really intense and very well balanced. Long stylish finish with the volume of the vintage very well harnessed. Excellent acid integration." Tasted: October 2020
Drink from 2025. 80 year-old vines and the depth of their root structure meant they did not suffer from hydric stress, resulting in wonderful, harmonious, phenolic ripeness. This is just stunning. Beautifully textured, lovely flavours, great length and quite seamless from start to finish. A triumph.
