92Wine Spectator

A lively, sappy version, revealing cherry, earth, spice and woodsy, gamy notes,..dense on the lingering finish, echoing sweet fruit and spice.

Here the nose plays right on the edge of reduction though not so much that the pretty mélange of dark currant, lilac, earth and spice hints are completely masked..plenty of verve to the beautifully detailed and notably saline middle weight flavors that deliver excellent persistence on the firm, mildly austere and balanced finish.

90Stephen Tanzer

Aromas of redcurrant, cherry, smoky minerals and milk chocolate are complicated by sexy earth tones... Finishes with a firm spine of slightly dry-edged tannins and lingering spice and mineral notes.

16Jancis Robinson

Mid cherry. Subtle, lightly dusty red fruit. Juicy, fresh and scented. Lively, approachable, with fine tannins in the background.

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.
