The nose is a fresh and vibrant blend of apple, quince, lovely, almost chalky soil tones and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and quite suave on the attack, with a very good core of fruit, sound framing acids and lovely focus and grip on the almost silky finish. Lovely wine.

Lemon cake and gingerbread flavors highlight this mellow, brightly structured white. Apple and pastry notes add interest. Finishes with balance and length.


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.
