Meursault 1er Cru "LES PERRIERES" 1993 - Potinet-Ampeau
Big cozy village Meursault begins a production area of very fine white wines, occupying the southern part of the Côte de Beaune. The vineyard is spread by gentle slopes, between 230 and 360 meters. The eastern orientation strongly supports maximum sunlight. Located ten kilometers south of Beaune, Meursault marks the beginning of the great white wines of Burgundy. Chardonnay is the grape of choice for these powerful wines, opulent and subtle. Located just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is the largest town in white wines in the south of Côte-d'Or. The excellent quality of the 1st Crus compensates for the fact that this name has no Grands Crus. The vineyard "Perrières" is located on shallow and stony soils as much of the surrounding land and undoubtedly produces some of the best wines of this village. Potinet-Ampeau traditionally works on long farms. Golden yellow color, Meursault is delicate, it combines woody notes from livestock with a ripe fruit. Wine while full length. Do not hesitate to decant before serving.

Has a very irregular weather disrupts the quality of the vintage. For red wines, the date of collection has been instrumental in the success of this vintage, the quality overall is between good and very good. In a deep purple color and they have an aroma that is spread out over the small black fruit (blackcurrant, cherry burlat) and combines beautifully with woody notes when they know evoke roasting or grilled. On a nice size and good length, they have a potential that destines them for a bright future. White wines bear the imprint of a harvest which slightly lacked maturity. They are of a quality between average and good enough, with some successes at the first and great wines. At first they seduce with their aromatic expression floral dominant, often enhanced by fresh notes of citrus and menthol. In the mouth, they are a fairly lively attack with a soft back and a mild finish.
