Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Les Vergelesses


In Remington Norman and Charles Taylor's book, The Great Domaines of Burgundy, Les Vergelesses and Île des Vergelesses are described as top sites in the village of Pernand-Vergelesses, "wines of weight and structure, capable of aging for twenty years or more." Les Vergelesses is just below Île, lower on the slope with more clay and iron. This parcel faces east, like the best vineyards of Corton, and the 1.22 hectare parcel was planted in 1954.

"The 2018 Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Les Vergelesses exhibits a deep bouquet of plums, dark chocolate, peonies and rich soil tones, followed by a medium to full-bodied, supple and succulent palate, its sapid core of fruit framed by powdery, youthfully chalky tannins."
