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

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.
