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

A spring-time just like summer. It was a very precocious vintage, starting off with trumpets blaring but already less festive by 14th July. Rain and storms; hope was lost... We were to harvest at the very beginning of September and after draconian sorting of the crop: we would witness the birth of crisp, light and fruity wines in red; whites would be taut, just as we like them, and can be kept for more than ten years (recommended).
