It is the stony ground to which the vine clings that has given rise to the name of this
exceptional “Climat”: “Perrières”. This Premier Cru has been renowned for its
finesse and pureness for many years: in the mid 19th century, the wine maker, M. de
Vergnette stated in one of his works that “Apart from the true Montrachets, I know
of no other white wine so exquisite”. Later, Dr. Lavalle mentioned it as “Tête de
cuvée” in his 1855 rating.
A complex blend of floral notes and delicate oaky touches. Both full and subtle,
this wine reveals considerable personality on the palate. Its marked liveliness gives it great
freshness, a sign of good ageing potential.
