“Offering up aromas of lemon oil, white flowers, Anjou pear and crisp green apple, the 2018 Pouilly-Fuissé Tête de Cru Les Perrières is medium to full-bodied, racy and incisive, with fine depth at the core, lively acids and a bright, chalky finish. This has turned out especially well this year.”-93WA, 2022-2040

The 2.5-acre les Perrières vineyard lies just above the Le Clos parcel, halfway up the slope. Les Perrières is somewhat steeper than Le Clos and is the only vineyard with a southern exposure on an east-facing slope. The vines are an average of 35 years old. The soil is derived from alluvial deposits and consists of deep silt and clay. The top layers, which are moderate in depth, are littered with stones on the surface (calcite and flint) over a meter-thick layer of limestone marl, and the subsoil features streaks of limestone and limestone marl.
