Domaine Albert Grivault - Meursault Premier Cru - Les Perrieres - 2011
is currently backordered. You may still purchase it now but we won't be able to ship it until it becomes available again.
Estate: Located near the village of Meursault, this winery produces wines that resonate with fruits and minerality.
The slopes of Cote d’Or provide a limestone soil that infuses the grapes with a mineral flavor that is only found in wines from this area. Originally founded 1897, the estate owner passed away without an heir to the vineyard. Albert Grivault took a leap of faith to purchase the property as it was rampant with Phylloxera. Being a successful liquor distiller, he was able to get the vineyard running and has passed the Domaine Albert Grivault on to his grandchildren with great success and providing wines that are coveted all over the world.
Domaine Grivault’s white wines are generally regarded as of a very high caliber, and are described as having a bright, acidic nature with astounding levels of clear minerality and when the French wine magazine Bourgogne Aujourd’hui conducted a survey to find out the superior white wines of the white premier crus, Grivault’s Meursault ‘Clos de Perriéres’ came out on top.
Tasting Notes: The bouquet is a rainbow of sensations that vary from flint, to hawthorn and all with an nice dose of white fruit.
The flavor is austere but fresh, delicate, very elegant and vibrating, an impressive solidity and a very deep, infinite finish.
A classic that will become immortal.
