Average critic rating : 91.0 points



This is also intensely floral with additional notes of mineral reduction, citrus peel and green apple. There is strikingly good detail on the highly energetic, saline and stony middle weight flavors that display even better overall complexity on the beautifully well-balanced and persistent finish. This is a Perrières of finesse yet there is fine flavor authority as well. Good stuff here that should reward up to a decade of cellaring. Tasted: Jun 11, 2013. Drink: 2018+



Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The 2011 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières from Michel Bouzereau has a potent, powerful bouquet with lemon balm, apricot and white peach scents that rather obstruct the typical Perrières minerality that you look for. The palate is quite rounded with slightly lower acidity than 3. Good weight and concentration in the mouth with touches of dried apricot, peach and a hint of marmalade that gather steam toward the spicy, assertive finish that does not really speak of Perrières. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014

Based in Meursault, 7 generations have run the 10.5 hectares of Domaine Michel Bouzereau and the most recent in line is Jean Baptiste. They believe that the work for a great wine is mainly in the vineyard : soil cultivation, small in size, severe de-budding and use of the most natural products. In fact they go so far as working to the lunar cycle – biodynamics – whilst bottling between November and March. Adapting their viticulture techniques and careful observation of each individual parcel leads to hand harvested healthy fruit that gives precise, balanced wines. In 2009 there was extensive investment in a new vinification site.
