TN: 2017 Domaine Heitz-Lochardet Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières

Distinctive green bottle. On opening it looks a little broad, but dense and brooding. Half an hour later it unfurls showing pulpy, concentrated, mouth coating fruits and a citric, mineral finish. It is classically Meursault in shape, combining richness and precision. The first white that I have tried from this producer and a great introduction.

Kent. Thanks for the notes. I tasted at Heitz-Lochardet a couple of years ago and really like their wines, esp. their whites. viewtopic.php?f=1&t=153014&p=2547924&hi ... t#p2547924 Had their 2016 Meursault En La Barre a week ago and it was really good for a village wine.

Nice note. Thanks so much.
I have a few coming soon.
The 2016 Heitz-Lochardet Meursault Perrieres is stunning too. One of the wines of the vintage to me.

Great. I have some 2016 Perrieres but have not opened it yet.

Yes, but given the way prices have gone up for so many producers, you should have room for a few new ones as substitutes. champagne.gif

I am not sure about 2018s. The couple (although these were from Chablis) that I tasted at the Paulee on Saturday did not impress me.

Another great but seemingly hard to find (or at least lesser-known) MP bottling would be Jean-Michel Gaunoux in Meursault. I've only tried their 2016 but it was very good. And even being tasted just after opening, definitely promising to be a great wine.

we are drifting but I agree—I’d just buy more 17.

I agree Alan. '17s are the real deal to my palate, up there with '14s in my book (NB. Broad generalisation)

Have liked the few Heitz-Lochardet I’ve tried, though hoped for a litttle more from the 17’ Gruyaches tasted recently. Nice but missing some depth and complexity.
