Domaine Meo-Camuzet Corton Les Perrières 2012

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Your first impression of "les Perrières" is that of a typical Corton, as it is so frequently described: austere, slow to mature, tannic. But that impression should be moderated because the wine is apparently multifaceted: frankness, certainly, but also an underlying structure that lines the palate and a finish marked by minerality. There's no heaviness, which facilitates the expression of this complexity. A long ageing period is certainly beneficial.

Wine AdvocateNew since 2009, the 2012 Corton-Perrieres Grand Cru comes from a vineyard that Jean-Nicolas confessed needed a lot of work when they took over. It has a relatively light nose compared to some of the other grand crus tasted. The palate is clean and pure on the entry with supple red cherry and cranberry fruit, although it needs to muster just a little more complexity on the minerally finish. This is one to watch.
