Considered as THE "grand cru" of Meursault, the 1er cru des Perrières is located on a fantastic soil of stony marl. The harvest is obviously done manually. The vinifications without artifice are made in the greatest rules of the art without sulfur or settling. The wine is then aged in barrels and vats for sometimes more than two years. Made in line with the appellation, we perceive buttery and empyreumatic notes. We are immediately seduced by its rich body, its beautiful fat and its depth. A great white guard!
Chardonnay 1er Cru, Vincent Dancer 'Perrieres'
Vincent Dancer grew up in Alsace, where he inherited a love of wine and photography from his father. After studying engineering, his father suggested that Vincent spend some time in Burgundy, where his family owned some vines that were being rented out to cousins. Dancer was immediately hooked, and decided to settle in Chassagne-Montrachet and make wine from the 5.5 hectares of well-situated vineyards. The winery is small even by the standards of Burgundy, and despite Dancer’s reclusive nature, the wines are well known to a small circle of restaurateurs and wine-lovers who reliably take their miniscule allocation year after year.
