It is the stony ground to which the vine clings that has given rise to the name of this exceptional "Climat": "Perrières". This Premier Cru has been renowned for its finesse and pureness for many years: in the mid 19th century, the wine maker, M. de Vergnette stated in one of his works that "Apart from the true Montrachets, I know of no other white wine so exquisite". Later, Dr. Lavalle mentioned it as "Tête de cuvée" in his 1855 rating
A complex blend of floral notes and delicate oaky touches. Both full and subtle, this wine reveals considerable personality on the palate. Its marked liveliness gives it great freshness, a sign of good ageing potential.
'From the upper part, three plots. It is in tank having been racked and fined. Fuller colour in primrose style. This is a very fresh nose rather than the heavier style. Further back on the palate the weight of this terroir starts to show. A good example of Meursault Perrières.' - 91-94 points. Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
