93-94James Suckling

...well-structured, concentrated and silky, this is an imposing wine for the appellation...very fine black cherry character develops.

91Wine Spectator

Aromatic, boasting rose, cherry, sandalwood, green olive and licorice notes. Balanced, if a tad less robust on the finish than the attack. Vibrant and long.

...background vestiges of wood and reduction to the cool and airy mix of both red and dark currant, spice and plum nuances. The mouth feel of the middle weight flavors is conspicuously more sophisticated and more mineral-driven as well and particularly so on the focused, delineated, youthfully austere and impressively long finish.

90-92The Wine Advocate

Deeper, more multidimensional and more complete than the Les Vergelesses, the 2017 Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Ile de Vergelesses offers up scents of sweet berries, forest floor, wild plums and grilled meats. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with a quiet presence and impressive length.

90-92Vinous / IWC

...attractive cranberry, strawberry and pottery wheel aromas...medium-bodied palate is quite steely and correct, displaying grippy tannin, well-judged acidity and a tang of spice toward the finish...

16.5Jancis Robinson

Intense aroma of sweet ripe but fresh red fruit balanced by a light stemmy herbal note. Light-bodied, elegant rather than lean, subtle.

Pernand-Vergelesses is an 870-acre appellation sometimes overshadowed by its famous neighbor to the east, Aloxe-Corton. Depending on the time of the day, Le Montagne de Corton literally casts a shadow over of the village of Pernand-Vergelesses, which has fewer than 400 people. Pernand-Vergelesses appellation wines can be red or white, and its most renowned wines are the Grand Crus it shares with its neighbor Aloxe-Corton. About 25% of the Grand Cru vineyard Corton-Charlemagne is within the Pernand-Vergelesses appellation. There are six Premiers Crus, they produce much of the wine of Pernand-Vergelesses and nearly 75% of what they produce is Pinot Noir. Many of the vineyards face northeast, meaning that inhospitable weather can be particularly challenging for growers. Robert M. Parker Jr. notes “in good vintages a top Premier Cru Pernand-Vergelesses will be a relatively rich, rustic, concentrated wine that is often compared to that of its nearby neighbor, Savigny-Lès-Beaune.”


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
