In the Encyclopedia of Wines and Spirits of All Countries, Alexis Lichine writes: “In Meursault les Perrières is the best vineyard plot and the wine from the heart of this cru, the Clos des Perrières, is comparable or more beautiful Montrachet”. A remarkable wine that can be stored for a very long time, the Clos des Perrières is capable of excellent evolution, as demonstrated in 1999 by a vertical tasting from 1997 to 1895, published in the Bourgogne magazine Today under the title Tout Pres Everest (Close to Everest). This exceptional development was reaffirmed in 2019 at another tasting to celebrate the estate's 140th anniversary.

Albert Grivault is a domain that stays somewhat under the radar (of course not with the connoisseurs) in the press because he never sends his bottles to be judged. Those who know these wines become regular customers as the wines can compete with the very best and few are made of them. A nice anecdote about the Cuvee is that during a horizontal tasting of Meursault Perrieres in London, when the participating bottles were uncorked, a cork from Albert Grivault came out of a bottle twice. 1 from a bottle of Albert Grivault and 1 time from a bottle of Maison Leroy Perrieres…. Since then it has been an open secret that the Perrieres of Leroy is made by Grivault. Of course both deny!

This Clos des Perrières is an exceptional terroir in the heart of the Perrières vineyard, distinguished by its own AOP 1er cru. With its original wall fence and its elegant gate, this jewel stands out from the other Perrières for its very stony nature and the depth and specific composition of the clay-loam-sandy soil: clay 46%, respectively silt 30% and sand 24%. like Montrachet, The vineyard has an area of 94 ares and 52 centiare, half of the Clos des Perrières was replanted in 1986 and the other half in 1989. It produces 5000 bottles annually (average over 20 years). The wine is aged in oak barrels, one fifth of which are generally new. The Clos des Perrières regularly wins medals at the Concours and when delayed is a wine that ages gracefully

Vineyard for 2019 Albert Grivault Clos Des Perrières Meursault 1er Cru

Het familiedomein Albert Grivault wordt geleid door Michel Bardet (en zijn dochter Claire), die de kleinzoon is van de stichter Albert Grivault. Het domein startte in 1879. Dit was één jaar na de komst van phyloxerra in Meursault en destijds had het bezittingen in Meursault en Clos de Vougeot. In 2019 vierde het landgoed Albert Grivault zijn 140ste verjaardag; een succesvolle familie-erfenis verspreid over vier generaties. Na Albert Grivault werd het landgoed gerund door de weduwe van Albert Grivault en vervolgens door zijn dochters Berthe Grivault en Mathilde Bardet, née Grivault.
Samen wisten ze de crisis van 1929 en de twee wereldoorlogen te boven te komen.In 1980 namen de kleinkinderen van Albert Grivault, Michel Bardet, Marguerite en Denise Chevignard, geboren Bardet, het landgoed over. Marguerite Bardet bleef tot 2019 op het landgoed werken. Sinds 2004 is de verantwoordelijkheid voor het landgoed overgedragen aan Claire Bardet, gedelegeerd bestuurder, bijgestaan ​​door Henri Marc, die verantwoordelijk is voor de vinificatie onder leiding van Michel, die nog steeds deelneemt aan de rijping en marketing van de wijnen. De wijnen van Albert Grivault worden gemaakt op mineraliteit en hebben een groot bewaarpotentieel.
