Meo-Camuzet Corton Les Perrieres Grand Cru 2012
This beautiful 2012 Méo-Camuzet Corton Perrières 1er Cru displays a deep garnet hue and offers a lovely bouquet of ripe red berries, cherries, and floral notes, alongside hints of earthiness, leather, and subtle spices. The palate reveals a medium to full-bodied wine with silky tannins, balancing acidity, and a rich, layered mouthfeel. The elegant finish lingers with a touch of minerality. This wine is drinking well now, but can age gracefully for years to come.
Producer tasting notes- Your first impression of "les Perrières” is that of a typical Corton, as it is so frequently described: austere, slow to mature, tannic. But that impression should be moderated because the wine is apparently multifaceted: frankness, certainly, but also an underlying structure that lines the palate and a finish marked by minerality. There's no heaviness, which facilitates the expression of this complexity. A long ageing period is certainly beneficial.
