Tasting Note
This Pernand has a very pale yellow colour and a floral clean nose, with notes of honeysuckle and menthol. In the mouth this wine is nicely rounded with hints of fresh almonds, apples and honey. With lovely structure the wine deserves to be let to breathe before tasting or wait at least a year to appreciate it's true value.

Vinification
Traditional in oak barrels with complete malolactic fermentation

Description
The village of Pernand-Vergelesses is situated only 3 kilometres from Aloxe-Corton backs onto the famous hill of Corton where Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru and Corton Grand Cru are grown. It is one of the most picturesque if least well known of all Burgundian villages overlooked by the magnificent Grand Cru hill of Corton. With similar soil-types but a northeasterly exposure the wines tend to reach maturity late into the harvest and retain a earthy, rustic character.
