What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...
This half hectare parcel of 35 year old vines also sits to the northeast of the village slightly lower on the hill than the Sentier du Clou. The soil here is intensely stony. This was the very first of the 1er Cru whites to be bottled at the domaine in the early 1980s. The wines sees 12 months of elevage and about 20% of the barrels are new. The “Perrieres” is an ample wine with formidable complexity.
