Between the Grands Crus Clos de Vougeot and Musigny, the monopole Clos de la Perrière is a vineyard of great historic significance at 2.26 hectares in size. Well drained and stoney limestone soils are complemented by rich mineral clay deposits with vines reaching 86 years old, adding to the incredible intensity of wines that are produced from this vineyard site. This is a wine that rarely is seen outside of the domaine.
In 2013, after a 21-28 day fermentation, the wine was aged in French oak barrels, 50% new wood, for 15-18 months before bottling and cellaring.
92 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
“An appealing hint of barnyard graces the black cherry and mineral flavors in this beefy red. The tannins lend a hard edge but the flavors persist through the firm, peppery aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2033. 75 cases imported.”
