Pale, bright lemon-yellow. Flamboyant orange zest and stone aromas come across as a bit more exotic than those of the Genevrières. On the palate, the wine's creamy soft citrus fruit is energized by powerful sappy minerality. There's great stuffing here but this very long, palate-staining wine will need time in bottle.

Just a little stinky on the nose. Then there is real attack and richness with massive tension. Sweet and powerful. Rich and not as concentrated as some vintages. Deep flavoured and layered. Honey but a bit of looseness too.

The 2013 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières is very…and this sounds utterly banal…”Perrières” on the nose. You just encounter those life-affirming, cold granite, slate-like scents that feel so crystalline. The palate is very harmonious with touches of white peach and nectarine, with hints of mineral towards the poised finish that offers enormous length, lingering a minute after the wine has departed. This is simply awesome.
