Winemaker Notes

Maison Louis Jadot produces a rich full-bodied wine, traditionally vinified in oak to yield a well structured cuvée which balances firmness with ripe fruit flavours. Notes of oak and vanilla in the bouquet are confirmed on the palate and carry into a sustained finish.

The strength and suppleness of Meursault make these wines ideal partners for food which is both rich and spicy, hot or cold : foie gras, fish in a cream sauce, shellfish in a sauce, poultry with cream, blanquettes, strong cheeses.

There is a distinct green apple character to the elegant floral, citrus and mildly toasty nose. The detailed, even chiseled middle weight flavors possess a plenitude of the hallmark minerality of a fine Perrières that continues onto the equally toasty, complex, balanced and beautifully persistent finish. This should be lovely in time though note that it will need a minimum of 3 to 4 years of bottle age first.
Range:90-92

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrieres comes from two sources. There is a touch more exoticism on the nose compared to the Genevrieres with seductive almond and coconut scents informing the citrus fruit. The palate is voluminous in the mouth, understated at first but then that mineral -wave- crashes upon the shore. Long with a nutty finish, this is a sublime Perrieres that will surely repay cellaring.

A legendary wine region setting the benchmark for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay worldwide, Burgundy is a perennial favorite of many wine lovers. While the concept of ‘terroir’ reigns supreme here—soil type, elevation and angle of each slope—this is a region firmly rooted in tradition. Because of the Napoleonic Code requiring equal distribution of property and land among all heirs, vineyard ownership in Burgundy is extremely fragmented, with some growers responsible for just one or two rows of vines. This system has led to the predominance of the "negociant"—a merchant who purchases fruit from many different growers to vinify and bottle together.

Burgundy’s cool, continental climate and Jurassic limestone soils are perfect for the production of elegant, savory and mineral-driven Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with plenty of acidity. Vintage variation is of particular importance here, as weather conditions can be variable and unpredictable. In some years spring frost and hail must be overcome.

The Côte d’Or, a long and narrow escarpment, forms the heart of the region, split into the Côte de Nuits to the north and the Côte de Beaune to the south. The former is home to many of the world’s finest Pinot Noir wines, while Chardonnay plays a much more prominent role in the latter, though outstanding red and white are produced throughout. Other key appellations include the Côte Chalonnaise, home to great value Pinot Noir and sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne. The Mâconnais produces soft and round, value-driven Chardonnay while Chablis, the northernmost region of Burgundy, is a paradise for any lover of bright, acid-driven and often age-worthy versions of the grape.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
