Pernand-Vergelesses is tucked into the junction of two valleys among the hills of the Cote de Beaune. This appellation includes 8 Premiers Crus Climats. Domaine Champy grapes, in their second year of conversion towards FR-BIO-10 organic wine certification.
Aged in French oak barrels with 30% new. Manual harvest
To the eye, Pernand-Vergelesses is intense ruby colour with blush highlights or an intense crimson. In the early stages, the nose is of strawberry, raspberry, and violet. When older, it evolves into underbrush and spices. The mouth is unaggressive but muscular with well-melted tannins.
This wine goes perfectly with the veal, roasted, braised or in sauce, leg of lamb, feathered game, or grilled pork. Roast beef would also yield to its charms. From the cheese board: Mont d’Or, Vacherin, Tomme de Savoie, Reblochon, Cîteaux.
