"A classic Meursault nose is comprised by notes of hazelnut, white orchard fruit and soft floral nuances. There is more volume and richness to the delicious medium weight flavors that possess a caressing mouth feel while delivering fine length on the lingering finish where a hint of bitter lemon appears."
"The quality of the  whites should be superb...." -Winery
"A vineyard toward the eastern extremity of the village, closer to Puligny Montrachet; a .56 Ha Monopole of the family Darviot, original plantings dating back to 1949!
Didier and Geneviève Darviot are the husband and wife team that oversee every phase of the wine making process at the estate and is internationally considered one of the finest sources of domaine bottled red & white Burgundies. The estate crafts Premier Cru wines which are produced from their vines in Les Charmes in the upper Charmes Dessus section of the climat, Les Perrieres, which they share with Coche-Dury, Meursault, and Chassagne Montrachet, among others.
The vineyards of Darviot-Perrin are ploughed and they use organic compost as fertilizer. They use no insecticides or weedkiller, and are dedicated to bringing their wine production as close to “culture biologique” as possible. The average age of the vines is 50 years, with some that are upwards of 90 years old. The white grapes are pressed in whole bunches, undergo debourbage for 24 hours, and then the resulting wine is fermented using indigenous yeasts in barrels at a controlled temperature of 18-20°C." -Importer
