2011 Bouchard Père & Fils Meursault Perrières Premier Cru
Recent release from the Bouchard cellars and still wonderfully fresh.
It is the marly ground to which the vine clings that has given rise to the name of this exceptional age-old plot: "Perrières". This Premier Cru has been renowned for its finesse and pureness for many years: in the mid-19th century, the wine maker, M. de Vergnette stated in one of his works that "Apart from the true Montrachets, I know of no other white wine so exquisite.’’
A complex blend of floral notes, green fruit and subtle vanilla. Both full and subtle, this wine reveals considerable personality good minerality and a wonderful freshness. Good ageing potential.
