Additional Information

Green gold with the scintillating silver reflections. Rich and complex with ripe white fruit flavors (pepper, banana), evolving with aeration into candied citrus and flint notes (chalk, stone).
The palate is smooth and crunchy at the same time with lemon and toast notes. Dense, energetic and digestible finish lingering through a generous sapidity.

    "The 2018 Meursault Perrières 1er Cru has a tightly wound bouquet that shows good intensity, although I would like more of the DNA of the vineyard to come through –more stoniness, please! The palate is well balanced with hints of tangerine and grapefruit on the entry and moderate depth, although again, it needs more complexity toward the finish. Let’s see how this pans out in bottle."
    Grade: 89-91 points
