“A mouthful of pebbles, spearmint, key lime, lemon pith, yellow apple, Bosc pear, jasmine, nectarine and peach. Striking purity and intensity, shimmeringly good, Grand Cru+ levels of intensity and quality.” - California Wine Advisors

Barrell Tasting Notes: “Superb. Well-delineated and energetic, with cuts-like-a-knife delineation on the intensely mineral-inflected finish. This is also with fine complexity and an almost Chablis-like salinity on the balanced backend.” - Burghound (6/16) 

BACKGROUND
Didier Darviot and daughter Alix Anne are quintessential vignerons; a tightly knit team that oversees every phase of the wine making process from pruning and plowing to racking the casks and bottling on their own premises. Didier learned the trade from his father-in-law Pierre Perrin who was a legendary figure in the wine making echelons of Meursault and Volnay. 

The first commercial bottling was a handful of cases of the 1989 vintage. The estate today spans 11 hectares and is internationally considered one of the finest sources of white Burgundy. 

It is an emphasis on the work in the vineyard which makes the difference at Darviot-Perrin. Vineyards are tended organically, which is seen only in a small portion of making fine Burgundy. Darviot-Perrin holds that vinification is important, but cannot replace impeccable fruit from the vineyard. Minimal intervention is the watchword where fermentations and malolactic frequently take a good year to complete, enhancing the complexity and quality of these impeccable wines from the finest terroirs.
