Pernand-Vergelesses Blanc 1er Cru Ile de Vergelesses
Of the four hectares that Chandon de Briailles owns in Île de Vergelesses, one hectare is planted to Chardonnay. It's a clay and limestone soil, which is a part of the same geological break as Charlemagne; with more clay at the bottom of the parcel and very calcareous at the top. The chardonnay, planted in 1985 and 1991, is in a perect location mid-slope facing east. One third is aged in a large, Austrian oak Stockinger barrel and 2/3 is aged in neutral barrels.
