Bouchard Pere & Fils Meursault Perrières-Premier cru 2018

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 winemaker, 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.
