and the stony, linear Les Perrières, hinting at peach, yet more floral and mineral, with terrific energy.(BS)
Notes of smoky mineral reduction and acacia blossom lead to highly energetic and even more mineral-driven middle weight flavors that arguably possess the finest mouth feel in the entire range. The beautifully long, tightly wound and dry finish is like rolling small stone around in the mouth and this is textbook Perrières.
The 2015 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières has a crisp, wet stone and flinty bouquet that gains complexity as it aerates in the glass. There is wonderful detail here and impressive focus. The palate is crisp and taut with a killer line of acidity, just the right amount of salinity and there is impressive complexity and mineralité running all the way through to the finish. There is a tangible sense of confidence on this Les Perrières; it is one of Pierre-Yves Colin's best contributions to the 2015 vintage. This is superb.(NM)
Very pale color. Very expressive aromas of pineapple, menthol, crushed stone and white flowers; more open than the Meursault Les Genevrières. Opulent, thick, tactile wine with unexpected sucrosité as well as near-painful intensity to its citrus fruit, peach and floral flavors. Sharply delineated but with plenty of baby fat to buffer its underlying minerality. Colin told me he normally prefers his Genevrières in very warm vintages like 2015, but admits that this wine is surprisingly open today. Will it shut down in bottle?(ST)
From Les Perrières Dessous, the lower part of this de facto grand cru, this opens with a reserved and typical bouquet of lemon oil, crushed stones and struck match. On the palate the wine has good freshness and concentration, but needs some time to come together and find its focus, though of course its élevage was by no means complete when it was tasted.Drinking Window 2022 - 2045.(WK)
