International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92($66-$110) Slightly exotic nose combines chalk dust, lime skin, clove and menthol, all lifted by a violet topnote. Fat, sweet and smooth in the mouth, but with good freshness to buffer its impression of alcohol. Strong wet stone and nutty oak flavors currently dominate the fruit. In spite of the wine's faintly exotic aspect, the vineyard character holds the upper hand over the vintage.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2008
Jancis Robinson | Rating:Attractive perfumed spice, restrained now. Mainly savoury but then a citrus zip on the finish. Fine texture, warm finish. (JH)Author: Julia Harding MWIssue: 01/31/2008
Wine Advocate | Rating: 91The 2006 Meursault Perrieres is (along with his Puligny Caillerets) the ripest of Boyer's 2006s, and while it only just reaches 14% alcohol, a bit of heat is generated. Despite that, and despite some superficial toast and vanilla from the barrel, this expresses the personality of its site to a significantly more impressive degree that any of its stable mates. A vibrant citrus character and multi-layered suggestion of minerality (chalk dust, stone, and salt) inform rich apricot fruit, marzipan, and butter cream, and the finish displays formidable clarity, interplay of flavors, and refreshment.Author: David Schildknecht
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
