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 AdvocateThe 2016 Corton-Perrières Grand Cru felt a little rustic on the nose and, at least at this precise moment in barrel, felt bereft of the same cohesion as some of Méo-Camuzet's other crus. There is a light sea influence here-just a distant tang of kelp, something estuarine. The palate is medium-bodied with fine and quite solid tannin. There is impressive density, the 10% stem addition imparting freshness on the composed and harmonious finish. Hopefully the aromatics will up their game and match the quality on the palate.
