The village of Pernand-Vergelesses is situated only 3 kilometres from Aloxe-Corton backs onto the famous hill of Corton where Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru and Corton Grand Cru are grown. It is one of the most picturesque if least well known of all Burgundian villages overlooked by the magnificent Grand Cru hill of Corton. With similar soil-types but a northeasterly exposure the wines tend to reach maturity late into the harvest and retain a earthy, rustic character.
Cultivation of vines
The vines are grown organically and a simple guyot pruning is used. All the work in the vineyard is done by hand. The vines are planted at a density of 10,000 plants per hectare.
Fresh bouquet of blackcurrant and redcurrant. Refined, elegant and ample on the palate.
Wine with excellent aging potential
Taste it at a temperature of 16 ° C paired with "borgognone" beef, duck breast, "coq au vin" and aged cheeses.
