Tête de Cru Les Perrières

Location

A vineyard of one hectare in size, located on the so-called ‘back side of the rock', les Perrières lies halfway up the slope, just above the les Clos parcel. The slope, which faces south-east, is somewhat steeper than that of les Clos.

Vineyards' age

The median age of the vines is 35 years.

Soil

The soil, which is derived from alluvial deposits, consists of a mix of deep silt and clay containing few stones. The subsoil features streaks of limestone and limestone marls, while the top layers, which are moderate in depth, are littered with stones on the surface (calcite and flint) over a metre-thick layer of limestone marls.

Tasting

An intensely generous nose with creamy honeysuckle aromas. A vivid palate showing a pleasing balance between depth of flavour and richness, and a long finish revealing notes of gingerbread and flowers. Ripeness of fruit gives the wine incredible richness that will become even more explosive as it matures over time.

Wine and food pairing

Chicken prepared with Thai spices; gratin of scallops with a curried sauce; veal with vanilla and sultanas; rich, creamy cow's milk cheeses.
