Pernand-Vergelesses Blanc 1er Cru Ile de Vergelesses

2019
France
Burgundy

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. Fermented and aged in two 1,000L Stockinger barrels. Bottled in September 2021 because it aged much slower in the large barrels. 

90-92 points
"Notes of crisp yellow orchard fruit, fresh pastry and white flowers introduce the 2019 Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Ile de Vergelesses Blanc, a medium to full-bodied, layered and nicely concentrated wine that’s bright and mineral. This, too, is a success."
