  • Goedhuis, December 2019

    Les Perrières is an extremely well positioned vineyard absolutely in the middle of the hill of Corton. A fresh energetic style with flavours of pomegranate and red cherry. A subtle degree of tension and a hint of Valrhona chocolate on the finish provide a charming touch of sweetness.

  • Neal Martin, January 2020, Score: 91-93

    The 2018 Corton-Perrières Grand Cru includes a few stems in the blend this year and was one of two parcels picked on August 29. It has a generous bouquet of blueberry, raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, plus a touch of blood orange in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins that frame a sweet core of red fruit. A little lower in acidity than previous vintages, revealing white pepper and bay leaf toward the finish. I think this will offer much pleasure in its youth. 2023 - 2038

  • Burghound, January 2020, Score: 89-92

    A moderately toasty nose combines notes of poached plum with those of earth, violet and a wisp of gaminess. There is both good volume and density to the bigger and richer if less energetic medium weight plus-sized flavors that terminate in a lingering finish where the supporting tannins coat the palate.

  • Wine Advocate, January 2020, Score: 92-94

    The 2018 Corton Grand Cru Les Perrières is also a beautiful wine in the making, offering up notes of sweet red berries, cherries, rose petals and espresso roast that's still youthfully primary. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, chalky and incisive, with terrific concentration, fine tannins and a beautifully defined finish. This, too, will require time, but it's less blocky and muscular than the En Rognet.

  • Jasper Morris MW, January 2020, Score: 92-95

    A little dark centre here with concentrated fruit on the nose, and a glossiness partly from the oak. A touch of reduction or maybe the 10% stems which have been added back. This is quite severe at the back: this time the stems are to give flesh, by improving the entry on the palate.

Producer

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

When Jean-Nicolas Méo arrived in 1989 he had very big shoes to fill. Henri Jayer, arguably Burgundy’s preeminent vigneron, had managed the domaine for the previous four decades under a share-cropping agreement with the Méo family. Since then Jean-Nicolas has more than met the challenge. Following meticulous viticultural and winemaking practices he creates wonderful wines with fine levels of concentration, and today, almost three decades since his ascension, it ranks in the upper echelons of the Burgundy firmament. The majority of wines are red, ranging from Bougogne Rouge up to their ultra-famous Cros Parantoux and outstanding Richebourg. But Jean-Nicolas also makes a miniscule production of white wine. He began planting the Chardonnay for his Clos St. Philibert on steep slopes overlooking Nuit St. Georges over 25 years ago from carefully selected Chardonnay clones. Domaine Méo-Camuzet has expanded its line of 'vins de négoce' in recent years. These wines are bottled under the 'Méo-Camuzet Frères et Soeurs' label.

Region

Corton

The Grands Crus of Corton, a red made from Pinot Noir, and Corton Charlemagne, a white made from Chardonnay are shared between Aloxe-Corton, Ladoix Serrigny and Pernand Vergelesses. The vines for both are planted on the hillsides underneath the plateau of Corton's woodland forest. The majorityof Pinot Noir is planted in the southern and eastern sector where the soil is naturally rich with red iron clay giving additional body and power. Overall, the wines from these areas tend to be fruit forward and fleshy with a balance of round edges and fine concentration.
