Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

93 JM / 92 BH /  90-92 WA / 90-92 VM

Faint lemon colour. The nose is discreet but classy and indicates weight to come, exotic without being over-ripe, excellent mid palate concentration, very good acid balance and extremely persistent. Lemon fruit notes throughout, not the weightiest example of Perrières but very fine nonetheless. Tasted: October 2017—Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

Tasting note: An elegant and spicy nose reflects notes of mineral reduction, essence of pear and acacia along with wisps of smoke and pain grillé. Here too there is excellent volume and intensity to the even more mineral-inflected flavors that culminate in a gorgeously long if youthfully austere finale. Some patience would be beneficial. Outstanding.—Allen Meadows, Burghound

The 2016 Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres has a strict, wet stone and smoke-tinged bouquet that is very well defined, almost Puligny-like in style. The palate is well balanced with a slightly waxy texture, spicy and a little angular at the moment even though it seems to meld together toward the finish. Give this 3 or 4 years in bottle before broaching, because it seems very "distant" at the moment.—Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
