The 2009 White Burgundies (Aug 2011)

The 2009 Meursault Perrières is stunningly beautiful. It shows fabulous intensity and grace from start to finish. Suggestions of mint and white flowers give the wine a higher register that keeps the wine light on its feet despite its considerable richness. The Perrières is intensely perfumed from start to finish, with layers of crushed rocks that wrap around the palate on the textured vivid close.
