The Perrières is the only bottling from Jacky Blot in Bourgueil that sees any new oak, as this wine is raised in twenty percent new casks and the balance being one and two wine barrels. These two are vines in excess of thirty years of age, hailing from one of the greatest vineyards in Bourgueil. The 2016 Perrières is outstanding, wafting from the glass in a complex and refined bouquet of sweet dark berries, woodsmoke, a touch of cigar ash, a superb base of limestone soil elements, a discreet touch of eucalyptus, a bit of meatiness and a gentle foundation of new wood. On the palate the wine is very pure and precise, full-bodied, complex and beautifully balanced, with a superb core of fruit, great soil signature, fine-grained tannins and a very long, very classy finish. - John Gilman
