If there was one major white wine vineyard that might hope to be elevated to Grand Cru it would be Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres. The vineyard produces exceptional wines with huge minerality and a great acid spine due to the presence of rock in the soil and the elevation and slope of the vineyard.
The name Perrieres, which also means little stones, comes from the quarry that was once on the site.
Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur was founded in 1860 and have an superb array of vineyards in Volnay and Meursault including most of the top climats.
We have a good allocation of the Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres 2019 but it won't last.
Until the end of the week we offer the wine at a 25% Pre Arrival Discount. After that it will revert to the usual 15% Pre Arrival Discount.
At $199.95 a bottle for Meursault's premier vineyard this is great buying.

Fine bright mid lemon colour. Individual detail is not yet showing, but there is good class and energy. The 2019 Bitouzet-Prieur Meursault Perrières is quite a reserved wine at the moment. While there is plenty of power behind, the mineral acidity thread which this vintage needs runs through the middle: the spinal column which gives it something extra. Not too plump a style, just a very good wine. 93-95 Points
Neal Martin, Vinous
The 2019 Meursault Les Perrières 1er Cru comes from a single parcel in Perrières-Dessus planted in 1983. This has far more detail than the Charmes with crushed stone infusing the delineated citrus fruit. The oak here is nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine, slightly waxy texture, subtle notes of praline and nectarine infusing the citrus fruit, quite tension with just the right amount of salinity breaking through on the finish. Excellent. (Drink between 2023-2042). 92-94 Points

An indepth look at the wines of
Gevrey-Chambertin
Gevrey-Chambertin - it one of the most loved communes in Burgundy. The village is based on a Roman settlement and grapes have been grown here for two millennium. In 2009 a vineyard thought to date back to the first century AD was discovered in Gevrey-Chambertin.
 
The wines of Gevrey-Chambertin are known for their structure and power. But when it comes ot the premier crus there are two distinct groups that have their own character.
 
The dinner will feature 12 wines split into three brackets of 4. The first bracket looks at Gevrey lieux-dits. Three of these wines come from the top end of the commune where the best Villages wines lie. However, the last one, Les Seuvrees, is the black sheep. It is a fine vineyard but lies at the very south and on the wrong side of the RN74.
Bracket 2 comprises 4 Premier Crus from 2016. They are well spread around the village of Gevrey itself. One of the exercises we always enjoy is comparing like wines and have the 1er Cru Champonnet from two makers.
The third bracket features four 1er Crus from 2015. Here we go from south to north - Les Combottes is the most southerly 1er Cru right on the Morey border. Once again we have a matching pair - this time Les Cazetiers, once of Gevrey's best.
The dinner will be at Rosella which will have reopened in the refurbished Fitzroy premises that formerly housed Gertrude Street Enoteca.
 
This is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge of the wines of Gevrey-Chambertin and enjoy some glorious wines from 2016 and 2015.
