Terroir: Located at the end of the North part of la Butte de Corton, the Pernand-Vergelesses A.O.C produces white wines on clayey limestone soils with crushed stones and the rock. We pick the grapes later than elsewhere. Cuvee vinified from terroirs of Frétille, Sous les Clous, Morand and Les Pins.
Vinification: Harvesting is done 100% by hand. Once grapes arrive in the cellar, they are immediately and carefully sorted and pressed with a pneumatic press. The wine spends 12 months aging, 3 of which are spent in stainless steel. Once finished, the wine is transferred to 100% oak barrels (18% new oak).
Aromas of hawthorn and acacia which evolve with age to honey and spices. A harmonious and pleasant body on the palate.
