Vineyard

Situated in the village of Pernand-Vergelesses, the parcel of vines is south facing and sits next to Corton-Charlemagne.  The soil is composed of white marl limestone and the vines are between 35-40 years old.

Vinification

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, 30% in new oak barrels.  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.

Tasting note

This wine is nicely balanced with a minerality typical of its village and is very rich and smooth.  The lovely, long lasting aromas of white peach give this wine good length.

Aging

8 to 10 years (stored in the right temperature and humidity conditions).
