The 2015 Meursault 1er Cru Perrières boasts the finest and most sophisticated bouquet among Jadot's premier cru Meursaults: scents of yellow plum, dandelion, sunflower seeds and lemon curd. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, good weight in the mouth, though it needs more acidity to cut through the richness on the finish. I suspect this will gain more tension by the time of bottling.
The 2013 Meursault 1er Cru les Perrieres has a bashful, reserved bouquet at the moment (the Genevrieres '13 is far more expressive), although it is delineated and focused with cold wet stone/marine notes loitering in the distance. The palate is very well balanced with a crisp line of acidity. Here, the propitious nature of the vineyard finally comes through and it is bridled with great energy and vivacity on the finish, with citrus peel, lemongrass and tangerine all lighting up the aftertaste. This deserves several years in bottle.

The French Wine region of Burgundy (aka “Bourgogne”) may be small in size, but its influence is huge in the world of vino. The complexity of Burgundy can cast fear into the heart of even a seasoned wine pro, but fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Yes, it is home to some of the most expensive wines in the known universe, but there are also tasty and affordable wines.

Main grapes:

Pinot Noir originated in Burgundy and these vines cover 34% of the region, accounting for 29% of overall wine production. The red grape does extremely well in limestone and clay soil, which helps create their complexity. Pinot Noir wines from Burgundy range in colour from cherry to brick, are light in body, and typically have red fruit and spicy flavours. Gamay is a red grape also grown in Burgundy, but only makes up 10% of the vines.

Chardonnay is the primary grape for white wines in Burgundy, making up 48% of the vines and 68% of production. Chardonnay appreciates Burgundy’s marl soil, which gives it delicate floral, fruit, and mineral aromas and full-bodied flavours. Aligoté is the second white grape, accounting for 6% grown. {Read more about the ancient Aligoté grape in Burgundy.}

The region does produce a sparkling wine called Crémant de Bourgogne. It can be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Aligoté, Gamay, Sacy, and Melon. Varieties include blanc, blanc de blancs, blanc de noirs, and rosé.
