Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres. Grand Cru Quality

 
Meursault Perrieres Header
Burgundy's next Grand Cru?
 
Whenever there is discussion about which Premier Crus merit Grand Cru status it is Meursault Perrieres that is the first white vineyard mentioned.

Perrieres produces wines with exceptional minerality and a long stony finish. Perhaps there is a little Puligny character in the wine - not surprising considering Perrieres lies on the border of the two communes. But there is also something that is unique to Perrieres.

For the moment Meursault Perrieres remains a Premier Cru with serious aspirations. And whilst it is the most expensive of the Meursault 1ers is certainly delivers a wine of great quality, it's own character, and is capable of mixing it with the best from the Montrachets.
Finding good stocks of Meursault Perrieres is never easy. It is not a small vineyard but demand is high. We have seven wines available - 3 in stock and 4 Pre Arrival. The quantities available are all small.
Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur Meursault

Normal Price $182.95

Bitouzet Perrieres New
Burghound: 
(from 30+ year old vines). A gentle application of wood frames a cool and airy mix of white orchard fruit, in particularly green apple, along with the classic floral and mineral notes. There is good if not great concentration to the relatively powerful medium-bodied flavors that possess a suave mouth feel, all wrapped in a chiseled, energetic and impressively lingering finish. This is not as dense or complex as the Charmes but it is notably finer plus I suspect that much more depth will develop with time in bottle. 90-93 Points

Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur Meursault 
1er Cru Perrieres MAGNUM 2013
Normal Price $329.95
Special Price $280.50
1 available

Bitouzet Perrieres New Burghound: Firm reduction renders the nose impossible to properly assess. There is outstanding intensity and a lovely bead of minerality to the elegant, pure and beautifully well-detailed flavors that are at once refined and classy. This should be excellent though note that it will definitely need a few years in a cool cellar first. A Sweet Spot Wine. 91-93 Points

Domaine Morey-Coffinet Meursault 
1er Cru Les Perrieres 2015
Normal Price $291.95
Special Price $247.95

morey-coffinet perrieres label 2015Darren Harris: Only the second vintage of this wine. Aromatic nose with powerful stony elements and a complex amalgam of fruit. The palate is fine and very bright feeling. It is leaner and more defined than the wines from Chassagne and Puligny served prior. There is a sense of richness below but it is bound up with the mineral and citrus character of this prime site. Very long with great style.

Domaine Robert Ampeau Meursault 
1er Cru Les Perrieres 1996 (yes 1996)
Normal Price $335.00
Pre Arrival Price $250.00
16 available

Ampeau Perrieres Label Darren Harris: (Direct from the domaine) Beautiful pale color. A whisp of sulphide on the nose! Nuts, brown butter, minerals galore: elegant and fresh, in fact tightly wound, with a real sense of underlying power. Long and very persistent on the finish. Very stony. 1996 was considered an outstanding vintage with wonderful acidity and this wine proves the point. Perrieres is a great vineyard and at 21 years of age this wine is not yet ready.
 

Domaine Latour-Giraud Meursault 
1er Cru Perrieres 2015
Normal Price $205.00
Pre Arrival Price $174.00
13 available

Latour-Giraud Perrieres Label Vinous: Stephen Tanzer: 
(from a yield of just 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to Jean-Pierre Latour): Very cloudy. High-pitched aromas of peach, white pepper, crushed stone and ginger. Rich, tactile and almost atypically generous for young Perrières, hinting at a tropical fruit quality but currently dominated by salty minerality. This thick but fine-grained wine is most impressive today on the resounding finish, which features a whiplash of firming minerality. Seriously rich wine in the style of the vintage. 91-94 Points

Domaine Fabien Coche Meursault 
1er Cru Perrieres 2015
Normal Price $292.95
Pre Arrival Price $248.95

Coche-Perrieres
No tasting notes. We get very little of this wine and quite frankly I am surprised that we still have a few bottles available.
Grab it before someone else does!




Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur Meursault 
1er Cru Perrieres 2015
Normal Price $220.95
Pre Arrival Price $187.95

Bitouzet Perrieres New Bill Nanson The Burgundy Report: A fresh nose, fainter yellow fruit, more mineral. Much more overt freshness and intensity vs the Charmes - mineral and persistent, direct and really very complex in the finish - oh, and ultra long. This is super stuff!
