- Item #: i_345109Bottle Size: 750MLeROBERT PARKER 92-94 POINTS :"The 2013 Meursault 1er Cru les Perrières has an attractive austerity on the nose, well defined, and actually capturing the essence of Perrières better than some of the more famous producers. The palate is crisp and precise with a keen line of acidity, well-integrated oak and a touch of grilled walnut and salinity toward the long finish. Bravo! This is very well-executed Perrières."
BURGHOUND POINTS 92 "OUTSTANDING" :"A subtle application of wood easily allows the elegant, pure and airy aromas of floral, citrus and wet stone where a hint of Asian style tea lurks in the background. There is plenty of mineral character to the beautifully well-detailed, intense and delicious middle weight flavors that conclude in an impressively long and palate coating finish. This is not especially complex at present and I would suggest acquiring this only if you have the express intention of holding it for at least 5 years."
VINOUSMEDIA 91-93 POINTS :"Discreet nose hints at white flowers, rose petal and white pepper, with citrus peel in the deep background. Fine-grained and aromatic in the mouth, offering an intriguing blend of sweet and peppery elements and wet-stone minerality. Finishes classically dry and long, with soil-driven smoky, saline minerality." -- Stephen Tanzer
- Item #: i_321804Bottle Size: 750mlA blend of 100% Chardonnay from the long, cool 2013 growing season. This cuvee includes 4 Grands and Premiers crus in the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims and 2 Grands and Premiers crus in the Marne Valley. This luxuriant bubbly was given: 5 years' cellar maturation and finished with a lowish dosage of 6 g/l. WINE ENTHUSIAST 91 POINTS-"A blend of Grand Cru fruit, this well-structured wine is rich while also tense, mineral and with further aging potential. Citrus acidity is allied to crisp apples to produce the fruity side of this well-balanced wine. It will be better from 2020."

It possesses a very fresh lime flower, mineral and citrus peel nose that is effervescent compared to other 2013s from Piuze. The palate is clean and fresh with good acidity, very harmonious with touches of apricot and tangerine, cohesive with very good tension on the saline finish. What a superb Chablis - one worth the effort in trying to pronounce."
