Pernand-Vergelesses has long been one of my favourite villages in the Côte d’Or. From many producers here I find that wonderful pinot fruit and elegance that I look for in a red burgundy. And in this wine from the excellent Domaine Pavelot, which is run by Luc and Lise Pavelot, I find just that. It has intense aromas and flavours of red berries, violets, roses and spices and a long, elegant and silky finish.
Luc and Lise Pavelot have 9 hectares in their village Pernand-Vergelesses and in the neighbouring village of Aloxe-Corton. They make 11 different wines. Iles des Vergelesses is the most important premier cru vineyard in Pernand Vergelesses. The wines here are often as good as a Corton Grand Cru. It is a gentle slope with a south-eastern exposure, ideal in Burgundy. The price is 22 euros from the property. More on the domaine: domaine-pavelot-pernand.com
