92Wine Spectator

This white is showing some new oak character, along with a leesy, bread dough note. Lemon, apple and vanilla flavors hold the center, letting this linger nicely on the finish. Should develop well.

90-92Vinous / IWC

...beautiful, comely bouquet, scents of freshly sliced white peach intermingling with pineapple chunks and a hint of apricot. The poised, harmonious palate is very well balanced, displaying a fine bead of acidity and a waxy, almost white-Rhône-like finish that lingers. Excellent.

Here too there is a discreet application of wood to be found on the nose of freshly sliced citrus, white flower and spiced apple scents. The much finer and more vibrant medium weight flavors exude evident minerality on the markedly dry but not really austere finale. Lovely.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses, Ile Des Vergelesses

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.”


White Wine, Chardonnay, 1er (Premier) Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
