Pernand-Vergelesses is one of the great bargains of Burgundy, comparatively speaking. It’s tricky to pronounce for an English speaker, which may help to make it less well known than its famous neighbour: Corton-Charlemagne. However, at often half the price of Corton and with classic Burgundy style in spades, Pernand-Vergelesses is a great buy. Moreover – 2010 is a truly great Burgundy vintage and this is a great example.
Rich nose yet with tension and minerals, savoury hints and aromas of peach pannacotta with herbal notes. The palate is rich with a creamy mouth feel, white stone fruit combines with minerals and fresh herbs. Dry finish with mineral acidity and powerful, persistent length.
The nose offers floral aromas of jasmine, lychee, and honey notes. The floral notes reappear on the palate, along with apricot, and mandarin orange. Medium bodied with good concentration and a refreshing ripe fruit finish. A Thai fighting delight!
Its sweetness makes this wine ideal as an aperitif served with mild cheeses, ham, and dried fruit and nuts. It is also excellent paired with sushi and fresh fruit desserts.
A lovely perfumed nose followed up on the palate with ripe flavours of zesty fruit and a full
long finish. Fresh, clean vibrant wine.
