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 precocious spring led to an early growing cycle. Unfortunately a cold snap set upon the flowering, which took away hopes of good yields. Vines were then hit by hail on the 28th of June the storm fell from Meursault, corton, lowering yet again the quantity of grapes. We harvested from the 18th to 26th september, with half the normal crop though picking at perfect ripeness. The reds have a great aromatic complexity and silky tannins, whites have freshness and a density. The wines are tasting very well at the moment.
