2010 Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru
Pernand village was named after Les Vergelesses, the most prestigious Premier Cru of this area. The 2010 Pernand-Vergelesses Premier Cru Les Vergelesses from Domaine Chanson is 100% Pinot Noir. The vines grow on heavy, rocky, clay soils, and are known to produce balanced, complex, and powerful wines.
Ages 18 months in oak, the 2010 Burgundy reveals gorgeous ruby hue and lovely aromatic intensity, with very ripe red fruits, red fruit liqueur, plum, vanilla, and spices. Generous on the palate, followed by lovely complexity, supple, pure, with elegant tannins. Tasty; crunchy finish.
