Île des Vergelesses Blanc

Location

Appellation: PERNAND-VERGELESSES Premier Cru Ile des Vergelesses Grape variety: Chardonnay Surface area: 1 hectare Planting date for vines: 1985 and 1991 Exposure: Due East Colour: White

Terroir

Clay and limestone; more clayey at the bottom of the parcel and very calcareous at the top. Elevation mid-slope.

Tasting

Aromas of pear and pineapple with an ample and complex palate and a finish in minerality. To be appreciated young or also when older, depending on one's personal taste.

Vintage

Here was a vintage with very good maturity and lovely balance. The grape skins were fine and so would be the wines. Structure was forgotten in favour of softness and the wines let themselves be appreciated from their earliest age. Of moderate colour, the fruit explodes on the palate while tertiary aromas start to be noticed. They are delicious to drink now, both reds and whites. The Pernands Ile des Vergelesses and Cortons can however be kept for another 3 to 5 years.
