Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone covered with stones.
Site : "Les Perrières" is situated on mid slope on the hill South of Meursault. This Premier Cru Vineyard is considered as the ultimate area in Meursault, combining richness and minerality.
The Vintage 2009 : After a cold winter and a beautiful spring, the hot summer was interrupted by stormy intervals which fortuitously took place when needed and thus facilitated growth and good maturation of the grapes. Harvest began early September with excellent weather conditions. Aging in oak during 12 months.
Tasting : Delicate gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with aromas of apricot and honey. Beautiful minerality. Intense, well-structured and voluminous. Tight texture. Beautiful combination of fruit and minerality. Subtle oak note. Long and generous finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with lobster, seafood, white meat and some cheeses (Reblochon, Cantal).
