I bought this label based upon my supplier’s recommendation, she thought highly of this winemaker, and she was correct. I must confess this has to be the most unique expression of Meursault Perrieres plot I’ve ever come across, even more unique than Coche Dury. For Meursault Perrieres tastings I’ve hosted, you can refer here: Meursault Perrieres Tasting Summary Report . Bouquet was relatively muted due to it’s young age. The content was ultra unique; soft and feminine dominated the major composition of the content, of course with great acidity. The most unique character I found was the effortless wine with absolutely natural and transparent style. Highly recommended to drink this right next to any Meursault Perrieres.

I bought this label based upon my supplier’s recommendation, she thought highly of it. I always liked this Meursault ‘Les Narvaux’ plot, it’s one of the best Merusault village plot, very small of 0.6ha, with pretty good aged vines between 35 and 60 years old. I can co-relate to all these statistics, the content was stunning; mineral and intense. It has this stout and tight body that flexes like a great yoga practitioner. I believe in a blind tasting, I would have rated this as a premier cru rather than village level, it wasn’t inferior at all. Definitely a worthy buy and a great bottle to be represented in a blind tasting of Meursault.
