PERNAND - VERGELESSES

Vineyard:

Established in the Middle Ages, in the north of the Côte de Beaune, this rolling vineyard covers the sides of the hills of Aloxe-Corton and Savigny-les-Beaune. It is the diversity of these soils and different exposures that give each of its Crus a very distinctive identity.

The area of production for white wines covers 54 ha, of which 7 are Premiers Crus covering 17.60 ha: Sous Frétille, En Caradeux, Clos Berthet, Clos du Village, Les Quartiers, La Morand, and Village de Pernand.

Yield: 45 hectoliters/hectare

Production: 3,000 bottles

Description:

Gold color with golden reflections.

With a good aromatic intensity, the nose opens on notes of citrus fruits, white flowers, and wild mint on a mineral and smoky background.

Well delineated on the palate, fresh and elegant. A good balance between the freshness and the roundness.

Long and persistent at the finish on a lovely minerality.

Winemaking and ageing:

Grapes from our domain which come from the plots « Les Quartiers », « les Pins », « La Morand » and « Derrière Frétille ».

Manual harvest and pneumatic press. Alcoholic fermentation and maturing for 10 months in barrels (30% new barrels). Bottled in September 2012.

Service:

Served at 12-14°C, this wine will wonderfully accompany grilled fish marinated in herbs, sole meunière, tartare of salmon with dill weed, sea bass with fennel, or goat cheeses such as Tommes de Debris or Banon.
