Michelot Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres 2010
This wine is made from two parcels which are found on the border of the communes of Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. The first, which is to the left of the Clos des Perrières, has clay/limestone soil and a subsoil of volcanic rock which allows a healthy root system to develop in this limestone-rich environment. The second is on the upper slope and overlooks the Perrières quarry. Here the soil is heavily limestone, partly as marl and partly as white rock. This is interesting for the way it brings mineral notes to the wine. During tastings we often find notes of white pepper and other spices both on the nose and on the palate. This wine goes well with fish, shellfish (when the wine is older), foie gras and sweetbreads.
