    Cuvée presentation

    Perrières is recognised as one of the finest terroirs in the Meursault appellation. When the vines have been tended by Lalou-Bize Leroy, and yields are incredibly low, the outcome of course is one of Burgundy's finest white wines. The precision and skill involved during vinification and élevage also obtain the very best from the grapes. The nose is sublime with a very slight reduction that evokes hazelnut. Its sumptuousness in the mouth is outstanding and the palate has been matured to perfection with a sublime acidic quality in the middle. The length is outstanding.

    Information about domain Domaine d'Auvenay

    The Domaine d'Auvenay belongs to the charismatic Lalou Bize-Leroy, who is also at the head of the less famous Leroy domain in Meursault. Its Chardonnays are noted to be the best in the world and their prices reflect this success. Madame Bize-Leroy, an energetic lady in her seventies, is also a fervent subscriber of biodynamics. She is Henri Leroy's daughter, the founder of the Leroy winemerchants, who bought half of the DRC (Domaine de la Roumanée Conti) in 1942 . In 1950s, she took over Maison Leroy, which had an impressive stock of vintage wines. In 1974 she took over from her father and became the joint manager of the DRC with her cousin Aubert de Villaine. She had to step down from this position in 1992, but still owns 25% of the shares. While building up the Leroy domain with other quality parcels, she purchased a farm at Saint-Romain that was to become the Domaine d'Auvenay. Included under this name are also the parcels inherited from her father, which were bought between 1989 and 1995.
