Les Vergelesses

Location

Appellation: PERNAND-VERGELESSES Premier Cru Les Vergelesses Grape variety: Pinot Noir Surface area: 1.22 hectares Exposure: East Colour: Red

Terroir

Situated on the lower, predominantly clayey, part of the slope, this parcel faces east and was planted in 1954 in deep, iron-rich soil.

Tasting

This wine is of intense colour, a wine that is rich, full and not very tannic. It rapidly develops aromas of fresh fruit before revealing a lightly spicy character for immediate pleasure.

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.
