It is the stony ground to which the vine clings that has given rise to the
name of this exceptional "Climat": "Perrières". This Premier Cru has been
renowned for its finesse and pureness for many years: in the mid 19th century,
the wine maker, M. de Vergnette stated in one of his works that "Apart from the
true Montrachets, I know of no other white wine so exquisite". Later, Dr.
Lavalle mentioned it as "Tête de cuvée" in his 1855 rating. TASTING NOTES: A
complex blend of floral notes and delicate oaky touches. Both full and subtle,
this wine reveals considerable personality on the palate. Its marked liveliness
gives it great freshness, a sign of good ageing potential.
