Meursault Perrieres 2016 Drouhin, Joseph
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Beaune|
The 2016 Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres has a strict, wet stone and smoke-tinged bouquet that is very well defined, almost Puligny-like in style. The palate is well balanced with a slightly waxy texture, spicy and a little angular at the moment even though it seems to meld together toward the finish. Give this 3 or 4 years in bottle before broaching, because it seems very "distant" at the moment.
