With most 2017 white Burgundies now being sold out we came across this gem at this terrific price. This is one of the top premier crus from Vincent Girardin and one of the rarest. The Domaine only typically makes about six barrels of the wine or about 150 cases. Its is a classic Meursault Perrieres in every sense, and one that usually flies under the radar, but rivals the top examples of the vineyard.
Wine Advocate (James Kelley) 94+ The 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières is performing brilliantly, unwinding in the glass with a textbook bouquet of citrus oil, crisp green apple, Anjou pear, mandarin oil, crushed chalk and struck flint. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, it's muscular but tight-knit, with racy acids, excellent concentration and a long, mineral finish. From 65-year-old vines planted on the SO4 rootstock, Germain tells me this parcel isn't very vigorous and always gives tiny yields.
