Nicolas Potel sources the grapes for this wine from the Perrieres vineyard, which is considered one of the best premier cru vineyards in Meursault. The vineyard is located on a south-facing slope with well-draining limestone soil, which gives the wine its characteristic minerality and crisp acidity.
This wine has a pale gold color with aromas of citrus, white flowers, and a hint of oak. On the palate, it is full-bodied and complex with flavors of lemon, honey, and a subtle hint of vanilla. The wine has a long and smooth finish with a good balance of acidity and minerality.
Nicolas Potel Perrieres Meursault 1er Cru 2018 pairs well with a wide range of dishes, including seafood, roasted chicken, and creamy pasta dishes. It is also an excellent choice for cellaring, as it can age for up to 10-15 years.
