90/100 Punkte Robert Parker Feb 2018 Dressed in a beautiful dark salmon color, the 2016 Auvernier Oeil de Perdrix is a pure Pinot Noir rosé with a Champagne-like bouquet of sweet cherries and smoky limestone. Full-bodied, round and very elegant with intense fruit and a persistent finish, this nicely balanced rosé reveals fine tannins and lovely acidity. It has a bit of the gentle character of Chasselas and the delicacy of Pinot Noir. This is really lovely and pretty unique in style with a good finish. Love it! No idea how long this can age, but it's perfect now and will surely be good for the next four or five years. The firm structure and rich extract are promising, though. It's not a primary, fruity rosé, and it could age like a Chasselas (or Pinot Noir). Tasted February 2018.
91/100 Punkte Robert Parker Feb 2018 Pretty dark but clear, the golden, pink-yellow colored 2015 Auvernier Pinot Gris opens with a lovely clear, precise and aromatic bouquet of ripe, intense fruits intertwined with the smoky aromas of crushed limestone. Rich and intense but very elegant on the palate, this is a pure, salty and pretty powerful Pinot Gris, slightly oxidative in style, with ripe apple flavors and good structure on the finish. Tasted February 2018.
92/100 Punkte Robert Parker Feb 2018 Is there any better, finer or more sexy Pinot Noir on planet wine at this price than Perrochet's 2015 Auvernier Pinot Noir? I'd bet there is not. The 2015 opens pure, very fine and elegant but also beautifully fruity on the nose, where perfectly ripe cherry and red berry aromas are displayed along with the purity, freshness and clarity of a great limestone terroir. Round, concentrated, dry and very elegant on the palate, with beautiful lift, grip and tension though not that much depth, this is simply gorgeous Pinot Noir with great finesse and endless charm. Oh, how much I love this crisp, brittle finish! Although the past vintages were very low in yields, the 2015 still sells for a ridiculous 22 Swiss Francs, even though many of you readers would buy it for at least triple that price. From biodynamically farmed vineyards. Tasted February 2018. Tasted again from the same bottle ten days later, and the wine was still impressive: elegant, lively
93/100 Punkte Robert Parker Feb 2018 From Jura vines grafted onto 40-year-old Chasselas vines in 2012, Perrochet's 2016 Auvernier Savagnin Blanc is pure, fresh, deep and aromatic on the nose. On the palate this is a clear, fresh, chalky-mineral, vital and elegant Savagnin with remarkable finesse, grip and a citric freshness. The finish is pretty long and complex, and there is a lot of mineral tension. A beautiful wine for avant-garde somms of planet wine. Electrifying!
