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.

    Our Pernand-Vergelesses rouges 2014 shows a deep ruby red colour. The nose is intense and reveals black currant, liquorice, undergrowth and vanilla notes. The mouth, ample and well-balanced, offers silky tannins with black fruits aromas.
