Domaine Heitz Lochardet Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrieres 2016
8.75 stars
15 Aug 2020

Served double blind, it was quite easy to spot that the wine was a burgundy but very difficult to nail it down as a Meursault, not to mention differentiating it as a Les Perrieres. Heitz-Lochardet made his fame producing Chassagne Montrachet wines in recent vintage, and I was fortunate to have a glass of Philippe Colin Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru En Remilly 2016 side by side for comparison. Frankly, this Les Perrieres 2016 paled right next to the En Remilly, as it lacked definitive flavor, and lacked an obvious character, it was like wines being produced for the sake of production, there wasn’t any charm nor excitement. The only saving grace was that this Les Perrieres’ content had a cleanliness and slight transparency, thus making the wine relatively clean. For their pricetag, I’d skip recommending it.
