Tasting notes

The Meursault 1er Cru Perrières reveals a yellow dress with pale golden hints. The complex nose offers notes of citrus, vanilla flowers and almond paste. The mouth is marvellous, it offers notes of brioche and almonds. A very nice persistence, with a lot of freshness on the finish.

Winemaking notes

Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Côte-d'Or. Surprisingly enough for an appellation of this quality, no Grand Cru exists, however the high quality of the 1er Cru more then compensates for this. The vineyard of Meursault « Perrières » tends to show a soil that is thinner and stonier than many of its immediate neighbours, producing what is arguably one of the finest example of the wine from this village.
