Average critic rating : 90.75 points



A deft touch of wood frames the cool and ultra-elegant nose of green apple, acacia blossom, pear and mineral reduction. There is superb intensity to the detailed and tension-filled middle weight flavors that seem to be extracted directly from liquid rock, all wrapped in a superbly persistent and very complex finish. This has outstanding development potential and indeed it will require at least 5 to 7 years of cellar time before it's even remotely ready to be enjoyed. A classic example. Tasted: Jun 11, 2013.

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The 2011 Meursault 1er Cru les Perrières has a slightly subdued bouquet, although it is well defined. It bides its time and gently unfolds with lemon thyme and limestone scents reluctantly emerging. The palate is clean and fresh with piercing acidity – almost shrill. But it is fresh and vibrant with an engaging, almost mint-fresh finish that should develop nicely with bottle age. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014
