Pernand Vergelesses of Domaine Follin-Arbelet comes from Chardonnay grapes grown on clayey and calcareous soils. The Domaine Follin-Arbelet is located in Burgundy, in the center of the village of Aloxe-Corton. The company was born recently, but the owner, Frank Follin-Arbelet, descends from an ancient Aloxe-Corton family. After studying geology, Frank Follin-Arbelet decides to devote himself to viticulture, first with a small rented plot, then expands the business by purchasing numerous vineyards.
After a particularly short winter, the months of February and March are almost spring, dry, with even a record of heat for the season on February 27, favoring the awakening and early development of the vines. On April 5th there is a first morning frost followed by four others until May 7th. Winegrowers run for cover by lighting fires to protect the vines. The summer of 2019 is one of the hottest known with two heat waves: one in late June and the other in late July. In some places it will exceed 40 ° C. Fortunately, the month of August brings rains that allow nature to regenerate. The climate is cool at the beginning of September to warm up as the harvest approaches, which begins in the middle of the month.
Brilliant straw yellow with golden reflections. The scents of honey and honeysuckle pave the way for notes of exotic fruit and citrus, on a spicy and mineral background. In the mouth it reveals an energetic minerality, which constitutes its backbone, and is fresh as well as persistent.
Wine to be enjoyed in the early years.
