The 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Perrières exhibits notes of crisp orchard, citrus zest, freshly baked bread, toasted almonds and nutmeg. Medium to full-bodied, racy and incisive, it's a tightly wound, electric wine despite the warm, generous vintage. At this early stage, this is even more impressive than Pierre-Yves Colin's Chassagne Caillerets—something that isn't invariably the case.
Moderate reduction suppresses everything but whispers of floral and citrus. Otherwise there is a bit less mid-palate density but more evident minerality and refinement to the middle weight flavors that flash excellent length on the youthfully austere finale. This too needs to develop more depth though given how tightly wound this is, it should have no trouble doing that over time.
