François owns just over a quarter-hectare of Chardonnay, planted in 1983, in the lower part of this fabled premier cru (Les Perrières Dessous) , situated immediately above Les Charmes on the slope. Always the most dazzlingly mineral wine in their lineup, Bitouzet's Meursault-Perrières offers a tight-grained, tunneling, borderline saline palate that can be almost overwhelming in youth, but unfailingly blossoms gradually into a white Burgundy of layered majesty. 25-30% new oak is employed in its 16-month élevage.

The 2019 Meursault Les Perrières 1er Cru comes from a single parcel in Perrières-Dessus planted in 1983. This has far more detail than the Charmes with crushed stone infusing the delineated citrus fruit. The oak here is nicely integrated. The palate is medium- bodied with a fine, slightly waxy texture, subtle notes of praline and nectarine infusing the citrus fruit, quiet tension with just the right amount of salinity breaking through on the finish. Excellent.

The most reserved of these young whites is the 2019 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières, a medium to full-bodied wine evocative of crisp orchard fruit, hazelnuts and warm bread. Bright and chalky, it's tightly wound and will merit some patience.
