“Very pale color. Very expressive aromas of pineapple, menthol, crushed stone and white flowers; more open than the Meursault Les Genevrières. Opulent, thick, tactile wine with unexpected sucrosité as well as near-painful intensity to its citrus fruit, peach and floral flavors. Sharply delineated but with plenty of baby fat to buffer its underlying minerality. Colin told me he normally prefers his Genevrières in very warm vintages like 2015, but admits that this wine is surprisingly open today. Will it shut down in bottle?” – Vinous

“The 2015 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières has a crisp, wet stone and flinty bouquet that gains complexity as it aerates in the glass. There is wonderful detail here and impressive focus. The palate is crisp and taut with a killer line of acidity, just the right amount of salinity and there is impressive complexity and mineralité running all the way through to the finish. There is a tangible sense of confidence on this Les Perrières; it is one of Pierre-Yves Colin’s best contributions to the 2015 vintage. This is superb.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“From Les Perrières Dessous, the lower part of this de facto grand cru, this opens with a reserved and typical bouquet of lemon oil, crushed stones and struck match. On the palate the wine has good freshness and concentration, but needs some time to come together and find its focus, though of course its élevage was by no means complete when it was tasted.” – Decanter

Tasting Note: Considered by many the finest of the 1er Cru sites in Meursault, and worthy of Grand Cru status, Les Perrières truly comes alive in a great vintage, of which the 2015 is one of the finest in recent memory. Defined by aromas of white peach, lime and florals, kept in check by a strong mineral edge, the palate is on the right side of creamy with incredible texture and a chalky line running through the finish. Wonderful balance of acidity means this Perrières will develop striking character as it ages over the coming decade, just approachable now.
