Chateau Genot Boulanger Savigny les Beaune Blanc Vieilles Vignes 2017
Guillaume and Aude Lavollée represent the fourth generation of vignerons at Génot-Boulanger. Their wines are produced exclusively from estate-owned vineyards, located along all three Burgundy côtes, from Chambolle Musigny, down to the domaine in Meursault, and on to Mercurey. With 22 hectares, Génot-Boulanger is one of only a few family-owned Burgundian domaines to produce such a diverse range from over 30 appellations.
Since 2008, Guillaume and Aude have worked painstakingly to improve the quality of their wines, converting to organic farming practices and experimenting with biodynamics. The domaine’s philosophy is “maximum work in the vineyards for minimum intervention in the cuverie.” This has translated to wines that are first and foremost true to their terroir. We have met and tasted wine with Guillaume and Aude several times since they were first married and Guillaume joined his wife's estate. They are both quite quality-driven and serious in their pursuit of excellence! Their Savigny-Les-Beaune Blanc Vieilles Vignes is made from very old vines of the estate. It has aromas and flavors of white flowers, thirst-quenching minerals, ripe citrus, gentle spices and subtle vanilla. We tasted and loved this 2017.
