Pernand Vergelesses Village, Blanc

Pernand Vergelesses Village, Blanc

The white wines from the village of Pernand-Vergelesses are noted for their mineral driven profiles. The whites from Pavelot are no exception. Taken from the east facing vineyards just south of the village called Sous le Bois de Noël and Belle-Filles, and from Les Plantes des Champs and Combottes, looking west, just north of and behind the village.

Everything is here and in delightful balance for this humble wine of modest origin. Taken from several village parcels of varying east and west facing exposures, this Pernand Village Blanc displays a Chablis-like mineral essence of wet-rock, lemon citricity, apple orchard and a gentle toastiness which melts gracefully into the greater whole.  What’s not to like?

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.
