Tasting Notes

92-94 Points Vinous
The 2019 Meursault Les Perrières 1er Cru is quite intense on the nose, although I found more terroir expression on the Genevrières by comparison. The well-balanced palate has a saline entry, a fine bead of acidity and an intense, quite citric finish; good salinity on the aftertaste. This Les Perrières has plenty of energy and should offer 15–20 years’ drinking.

92-94 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2019 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières is very promising, delivering notes of citrus oil, white flowers, mandarin, fresh bread and struck match. Medium to full-bodied, racy and chiseled, it’s bright and mineral, with a tight, tangy profile that’s defined by the site more than the vintage.

93-96 Points Jasper Morris
“Full lemon yellow the most compete nose of the big three, combining aspects of the other two. Pears in the background, starts discreetly then really kicks on before reaching a complex powerful finish with very good acidity. High class wine here with excellent length.”
