Pernand-Vergelesses Les Vergelesses
1er Cru
2006

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 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful wines with very pure aromas. Aged in French oak for 14 months.

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of preserved blackberries and liquorice on a well-shaped vanilla note. Concentrated, complex and well-structured. Beautiful aromatic combination on the fruit. Well-integrated oak note and fine tannins. Outstanding persistence.

Food pairing : Enjoy with grilled steack and a wide selection of French cheeses, in particular Brie.
