Pernand-Vergelesses "Les Belles Filles"
Situated in the village of Pernand-Vergelesses, the "Les Belles Filles" parcel of vines sits at the top of the east facing slopes, alongside Premiers Crus vineyards. The soil is composed of white marl limestone and the vines are between 35-40 years old.
After harvesting by hand, carried-out when the grapes have reached full maturity, the grapes are gently pressed in a pneumatic press. The must is settled overnight and put into barrels (which have been used 2 to 4 times previously). The fermentation starts naturally using indigenous yeast and bacteria. After being racked 9 months later, the wines undergo a fine filtration using a membrane filter of 5μ and are then bottled by gravity.
This wine has a mineral structure, typical of the appellation, even with its taut character, notes of white fruit come through on the palate, with good concentration and length.
5 to 8 years (stored in the right temperature and humidity conditions).
