Location

Appellation: PERNAND-VERGELESSES Premier Cru Ile des Vergelesses Grape variety: Pinot Noir Surface area: 3.13 hectares Average age of vines: 40 years Exposure: East Colour: Red

Terroir

These vines are found mid-slope on a slight incline facing east and their soil is shared between clay and limestone in medium deep ground, making this an exceptional terroir. The vines were planted in several phases, with an average age of 40 years.

Tasting

The wine is of great aromatic finesse on the nose, very intense, and develops scents of red fruits tending to liquorice and spices. Its structure is straight-line and tannic; it possesses great power and long persistence on the palate. Wait around 5 years before opening.

Vintage

A late wet spring with rain during flowering. A high level of disease pressure, predominantly from downy mildew that was well managed by the domaine. Grapes reached optimum ripeness thanks to their healthy foliage. Vine yields were low due to the millerandage from the cold and wet flowering. Half the normal crop was picked, starting on september 20th with a good latter part of the saison. Grapes had an exceptional quality and in turn made extremely balanced, intense and vibrant wines. Great potential for ageing reds and whites.
