Perrières

Two parcels, one of 2 'ouvrées' (856 sq m) situated at the south of the appellation in the 'Perrières-Dessous' and fairly young, and the other of 16 'ouvrées', also in the Perrières-Dessous but the first parcel at the north of the appellation.

Facing south east, these vines mature very early but with an irregular yield, (30 to 45 hl/ha). Less soil though whiter and with considerable limestone and marl over a subsoil of flaky slabs of limestone.

It produces very powerful wines with a specific mineral flavour typical of this 'terroir'. Elegant and mineral sensations dominate whilst very long on the palate.

A third small parcell (14 ares) has been bought in 2004, first harvest in 2010.
