Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : South of the hill of Corton Chanson owns a vineyard of 5.4 hectares in "Les Vergelesses", the most famous Premier Cru in Pernand which has given its name to the village.
The Vintage 2004 : Harvest took place at the end of September after a cool and humid Summer with short periods of very hot weather. The "tri", sorting of the grapes was drastic to keep only the very ripe berries. The combination of strictly controlled yields and a meticulous vinification process played a major part in the quality of the vintage. Aging in casks during 15 months
Tasting : Ruby colour with purple tinges. Intense aromas of red berries ( raspberry) mixed with spicy nuances. Concentrated, and complex. Intense aromatic combination with beautiful spicy nuances. Delicate oak note. Good persistence.
Food pairing : Enjoy with grilled steak and a wide selection of French cheeses, in particular Brie.
