The Pernand-Vergelesses vineyards stretch over the hilly slopes between Aloxe-Corton and Savigny-les­-Beaune. This locality is one of the oldest vineyards of Burgundy: it was planted in 1158 by the monks of the Abbaye de Maizieres. We have 0,9 ha of this appellation.

Harvest by Hand. Cold maceration. Natural yeast fermentation and vatting for three weeks. Aged in barrels of which 20% are new during 12 months.

Lovely, dark garnet colour, with a beautiful shine. Good aromatic intensity. The nose is very fresh, with notes of red and black fruit on a mineral, smoky background (marl, limestone). Well-deflned,fresh and fruity on the palate. Good structure and balance, the tannins are present but fine. Persistent finish ending on fruitiness and mineral freshness.
