"The 2018 Meursault Les Perrières 1er Cru comes from 1.2 hectares over three different parcels. It has an intense bouquet of crushed rock, pressed yellow flowers, hints of nectarine and yellow plum that develops with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, quite gentle and very pretty for a Perrières, leading to a caressing, pineapple- and passion-fruit-tinged, waxy-textured finish. Very fine. (Drink between 2022-2038)" Vinous 91-93 points

"Notes of matchstick and reduction push the underlying fruit to the background though I suspect that the nose will clean up with a few years of aging. Otherwise there is very good volume to the surprisingly lush, even opulent, middle weight flavors though there is plenty of the hallmark minerality suffusing the well-balanced bitter lemon-inflected finish. This could also be approached young." Burghound 92 points
