When you learn that Clos des Perrières was bought by a 23-year-old Albert Grivault in the middle of a phylloxera epidemic, it's impossible not to be won over by its story. This gem of a Meursault is produced on a monopole site and is thought of as the appellation’s unofficial grand cru. Like all fine Meursaults, it reveals beautiful, buttery and brioche notes. It makes an exquisite pairing with monkfish and veal dishes.
Domaine de Meursault was acquired by Albert Grivault in 1879 following the death of the Marquis de la Roche. Today, Michel Bardet, Albert Grivault's grandson, runs the six-hectare domaine. The gem of the vineyard is the Clos des Perrières, a hectare of land which is run as a monopole and considered the best climat of the appellation. The domaine produces mainly Chardonnay and a little Pinot Noir. The wines are vinified using very sophisticated methods and are of a remarkable quality, placing them at the top of the wines of the appellation, even competing with certain grand crus.
