Tasting Notes

Whiffs of matchstick, lemongrass and mineral reduction are present on the cool and pure essence of pear aromas that are also trimmed in just enough wood to mention. The middle weight flavors flash a lovely minerality while the mouthfeel is very classy on the chiseled, sappy, dry and youthfully austere finale where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This will need a few years to develop better overall depth though it's not so backwards that it could not be enjoyed young if that's your preference. Note: from 3 separate parcels Drink: 2025+

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (80), October 2020

The 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières is showing very nicely from bottle, offering up a youthful but already expressive bouquet of citrus oil, pear, blanched almonds, pastry cream and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, racy and incisive, it's elegantly textural, with fine concentration, tangy acids, and a precise, mineral finish. While this Perrières is already deceptively charming, if it gains in depth and complexity with bottle age as much as I suspect it will, this score may seem conservative.
