The 1er Cru of Les Perrieres is the most southerly of the hill that looks East down at the village of Fuisse. To the north is the much larger 1er Cru of Les Vignes Blanche then on up through to Le Clos, Les Menetrieres and Les Reisses. This sequence of 1er Cru’s some would say are the ‘golden mile’ of the village.Les Perrieres is the closest to the forest and in fact during the growing season the vineyard is shaded in the afternoon by these trees. As Christophe describes a ‘very fresh’ terrior. More acidity, tighter style Pouilly Fuisse. Typical of the name of other famous Perrieres the vineyard is littered with a lot of limestone close to the surface. Cordier own 0.3 hectates of this East facing 1er Cru. Vines are 15 years old. Fermented exclusively in 500ltr barrels, 20% new. 18 months on lees. No fining, light filtration.

About the wine

Tasting notes

Brilliantly focused and intense with citrus, mint, ginger, lemongrass, vanilla and nuttiness. It's mineral, driven with stunning acidity and as elegant as it comes. This is incredible.

Expert review

A cool and restrained nose timidly offers its pretty array of citrus, floral, white peach and soft wood aromas. The racy, intense and more mineral infused flavors are once again intensely lemony while the refreshing, balanced and lingering finish is bone-dry

The Grape

Chardonnay

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
