Pernand Vergelesses, Burgundy, France
These vineyards cover the hilly slopes of Aloxe-Corton and Savigny-lès-Beaune. There are only four Premier Crus Pinot Noirs: “Les Fichots”, “En Caradeux”, “Creux de la Net”, “Iles des Hautes et Basses Vergelesses”. Two new “clos” have also received the appellation Premier Cru: “Clos du Village” and “Clos Berthier”.
The grapes from Domaine Champy's “Les Quartiers”, “Les Pins”, “La Morand” and “Derrière Frétille” are used in this wine. They are grown on clay and limestone soil. The grapes are harvested by hand, fermented and aged for 10 months in barrel (30% of which are new). This wine is pale golden in colour with hints of silver. It has good aromatic intensity and nice transparency. The nose opens with white flower, citrus and wild mint notes, and a mineral touch. A frank, fresh and elegant attack. On the palate, the wine is mineral, harmonious and rich, with a long and persistent finish.
