RATINGS

95Burghound.com

...excellent concentration, all wrapped in a silky and impeccably well-balanced finish where a trace of salinity appears. This notably dry but not really austere effort is terrific...

94+ The Wine Advocate

It is clearly beautifully poised, very feminine and succinct with a very precise, spicy finish that lingers long in the mouth. There are no fireworks here, rather an accomplished cerebral Meursault with considerable ageing potential.

93+ Stephen Tanzer

Superconcentrated and vibrant in the mouth, with chewy, mineral-edged flavors of tangerine, ginger and powdered stone.

18Jancis Robinson

Very rich and intense. Complex and round at first with a real streak of green slightly oily acidity. A big monster, this wine! Clearly top drawer.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Meursault, Les Perrieres

Les Perrieres is 34-acre Premier Cru vineyard in Meursault, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. The vineyard includes several sub parcels. They are the 2.4-acre monopole Clos des Perrieres, which belongs to Domaine Albert Grivault, and Les Perrieres Dessous. Because Les Perrieres is in southern Meursault next to Puligny, the Les Perrieres Meursaults are considered to have more minerality than other Meursaults. Burgundy writer Clive Coates has noted that “Perrieres is perhaps the most elegant and persistent of the premier crus. At its best, it is positively brilliant…” Since Meursault lacks a Grand Cru, Meursault’s reputation for excellence is based on the Premier Crus, particularly the whites.

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay, 1er (Premier) Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
