2016 Domaine du Chateau de Meursault Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières

$89.99
2016 Domaine du Chateau de Meursault Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières


This large Domaine in Meursault was always an excellent buy for the money, every now and then, we get a screaming deal on one of their back vintage wines. With new owners and a large cash infusion a few years back, the quality really jumped and made world-class Burgundy through replacing the old wine-making equipment, cutting yields in half, and gaming sustainably. We typically offer the Meursault Charmes Dessus from this address, but the Meursault Perriers is one of the gems of this Domaine, especially at this pricing. Chateau de Meursaults Perriers is sourced from 1.12 hectares divided into two plots situated in a prime location smack in the middle of the vineyard, which are always harvested by hand. One plot was planted in 1995 and the other in 2000, both situated on hard Jurassic Limestone, and are vinified separately to find the optimal balance of the wine blending only the best barrels by the cellar master at the end. 2016 was a very small vintage, with many producers seeing some of the lowest yields of all time, but the fruit that was harvested was very high quality and concentrated. This is a great example of the vintage and vineyard and is an excellent buy at this pricing for a bottle of Meursault Perrieres.

Decanter 95 points Gold Medal! "Very saline, mineral and stony on the nose with hints of stone fruit and apples. The palate impresses with a lovely texture and tension, plus savoury nutty, stone fruit and stone fruit characters with a dash of blood orange. A very accomplished wine indeed."
