In 1168, the monks of Cîteaux received from the daughter of Duke Capetian Hugues, 60 hectares of vines on Meursault. 50 years later it was the turn of the Abbey of Tart to bequeath its territories to the monks and the donations continued during the Middle Ages. Today the Meursault AOC has an area of 395 hectares composed of 96% white wines. Located on the hillside, the plot of "Genevrières" takes its name from the presence previously small thorny shrubs with purple berries, junipers (genevriers in French). It is one of the most famous climates of Meursault.
The vines are planted on shallow soil, on the hard limestones of the Bathonian, alternating with white marls of rather poor nature.
A true spell of the taste buds to savor with an omelette with truffles or thighs of frogs.
