Notes from Manhattan Wine Company
Certainly one of their top bottlings, their Genévrières is sourced from plots in both Genévrières-Dessus and Genévrières-Dessous. Nicolas Bernard says “For Genevrères the growers have never made a distinction between the two parts, the upper and the lower, Genevrières-Dessus and Genevrières-Dessous. The soil in Genevrères is quite homogenous. Perhaps a bit stonier in the upper part. In the lower part you have 50 centimeters of loose soil. When you plough the upper part you hit rocks all the time.” Véronique Bernard Bonin explains that “Genevrères-Dessus produces a spicier wine, whereas Genevrières-Dessous produces a more buttery wine,” and so as a result of this, they have chosen to always blend their plots together assuming that the sum of the whole is better than the individual parts. We couldn’t agree more as the results with this wine over the years has been astounding – powerful and long, piercing and pure. A true delight!
