FINEST & RAREST
2011 MEURSAULT, 1er Cru Perrières, Pernot-Belicard. Burgundy
Perrieres is perhaps the most highly regarded vineyard within the village (there are no 'Grand Cru' sites). Perfectly situated half way up the slope and bordering Puligny Montrachet.
"It only seems like yesterday that Philippe Pernot, son of Paul, began producing wines under his own label from vineyards from his wife’s family but it is almost 10 years! In that time the progression has been clear both in the approach and the confidence with which Philippe has gone about things. Perhaps the biggest change has been the extension to the length of the élevage which has elongated the wines and add greater tension. He also picks earlier than he used to and it’s clear the wines have more vibrancy than they did in the early days. New oak is used sparingly, around 20% for the village wines and a touch more for the 1ers Crus. One day Philippe will extend his holdings when he inherits some of his father’s vineyards (Paul has almost 20 hectares of prime vineyards) but for now he is doing a grand job with the excellent holdings currently at his disposal."
