Pernand Vergelesses 1er Cru, Ile des Vergelesses

Pernand Vergelesses 1er Cru, Ile des Vergelesses

Considered by many worthy of elevation to Grand Cru status.

Illuminée par le soleil dès le petit matin, et caressée de ses rayons rasant lorsqu’il se couche à l’arrière de la colline du Bois de Noël où elle s’adosse doucement, l’Ile des Vergelesses se veut velouté, élégance et dentelle sophistiquée!

Illuminated by the early morning sun and caressed by its low angled rays when it lays itself down behind the Bois de Noël hill, where it sweetly comes to rest, the Ile des Vergelesses tends toward velvet, elegance and sophisticated lace.

Lise Pavelot

Ile des Vergelesses is easily considered the jewel of the crown among the 1er Crus parcels of Pernand. It enjoys an enviable southeast facing exposure, mid-slope, as the Bois de Noël hill stretches out between Pernand and its neighbor to the southwest, Savigny-lès-Beaune.

Moving over to the darker, masculine side of Pernand, this bottling only adds more to the expanding profile of cherry, red fruit flavors already on exhibit in the previous wines from the domaine, while adding a darker, more somber palate profile, a more reserved expression and a more sturdy tannic structure.

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.
