92-94 points Jasper Morris, MW: "2.6ha in the upper part for the most part, suitable to pick early, old vines. This has just been racked and fined. Pale lemon and lime. Very elegant nose, much more detail than the Charmes with a swirling weighty of gorgeous ripe fruit at the back, a peachier inflection that does not really impact on the lime infused core of the wine. Succulent finish. Very good indeed. (Nov 2019)"

92-94 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2018 Meursault Les Genevrières 1er Cru comes from 2.6 hectares of vine over two parcels. It has a vivacious lemon zest and orange blossom bouquet that shows a subtle influence from the lees. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. Very light nuttiness and smokiness come through on the finish, which feels tense and quite persistent. Good potential. Drink: 2022-2038. (Jan 2020)"

92-94 points Fine Wine Review: "Light, pure, dusty Genevrières nose and mouth. Not the concentration of 2017, but lots of charm here for early drinking. Domaine wine. (4/3/20)"

93 points Tim Atkin, MW.

93 points World of Fine Wine: "Pure, tense, tight, taut, very subtle, with a very powerful finish. Lovely. (Issue #67; 2020)"

93 points James Suckling: "A dense Meursault with sliced cooked apples and lemons. Some stone and minerals, too. It’s medium to full body. Creamy, almost chewy texture. Some juniper to the apple character. Drink and enjoy. (8/25/20)"
