Heitz-Lochardet's intense, focused and painstakingly refined white Burgundies have gained a serious following.
Unsurprisingly, Heitz-Lochardet's Perrières, along with their Chevalier-Montrachet, leads the charge.
Perrières is holy ground for Chardonnay. This site produces deeply complex wines with a riveting tension, intensity, and refined elegance. Meursault doesn’t have any Grand Crus, but there’s no doubt that Perrières can rival Grand Crus from other villages.
The combination of Perrières and Heitz-Lochardet's style is magical. Their Perrières is shocking in its finesse, tension-filled punch, and focus. The 2018 is sleek and silky with an undercurrent of mineral cut. It has lovely high-toned floral notes and an utterly captivating clarity.
It's very clear that Heitz is one of Burgundy's great young talents. Nearly everyone I give a bottle of Heitz-Lochardet to comes back to buy more. The Perrières represents the pinnacle of the estate.

Burghound: "Cool, pure, very fresh and airy aromas are composed by those of mineral reduction, acacia, lilac, lemon rind and passion fruit. The supple, delicious and stony medium weight flavors immediately tighten up on the very tightly wound, intense and driving finish that delivers outstanding persistence. This beauty will definitely need at least a few years of patience as it's very taut at present."
