Pernand Vergelesses 1er Cru, En Caradeux

Pernand Vergelesses 1er Cru, En Caradeux

standing opposite the hill of corton, is the steep hillside of caradeux
wearing a hat of hornbeams and wild cherry trees,
hazelwood and oak,
foxes and hares,
wild boars and deers,
chanterelles and snails
lichen and bark,
rust colored earth and rocks,
birds of prey and little birds,
cowslips and violets,
wild strawberries and wild huckleberries

to taste caradeux, it is all that!
gamey and heart-warming as you would expect
well developed tannins, but beautifully blended
delicately endowed of red fruits
of violets, subtly perfumed

Lise Pavelot

Moving up in the scale in depth of fruit, texture, and suggestions of moist earth and forest floor, it possesses all of the strawberry, red fruit notes to be found in the village wine and remains on the feminine side of the gender profile, while adding more layers of deep, sweet cherry fruit, roundness and a fuller palate.

Bourgogne AligotéThere’s good reason why Aligoté is the white wine accompanied by a splash of the syrupy sweet, locally produced crême de cassis which serves as the base for the well known Burgundian apéritif Kir.
