    This 3-hectare plot of 50-year-old vines is the family’s pride and joy and plays an ambassadorial role in the reputation of the commune of Pernand Vergelesses, in the same way as the hill of Corton does. With deep dark blackberry notes, the limestone mineral mid-palate gives precision and tension with a saline edge. Superb structure and certainly a long-term keeper.

    The 2020 Pernand-Vergelesses Ile de Vergelesses 1er Cru has 100% whole bunch. It has quite a complex bouquet with dark berry fruit, hints of cola and undergrowth, just a touch of marmalade. All quite nuanced. The palate is bright ‘n perky on the entry thanks to a fine bead of acidity, crisp red fruit, playful and vivid with just a touch of dark chocolate towards the finish. Drink 2023 - 2035

    Here the equally cool and restrained aromas are the most floral-suffused in the range long with an airy and spicy mix of red currant and dark cherry coulis. The mouthfeel of the intense and beautifully detailed flavors is more refined still while displaying even more evident minerality on the perfumed, stylish and classy finale. This is lovely and should age extremely well as it virtually always does. Recommended. Sweet spot. Outstanding. Drink 2032+

    This is a rather impressive wine, and I like the Chandon de Briailles smoothness of fruit and what makes this such a success is that the depth of fruit is awe-inspiring indeed. Not only is this a stunning wine, it is also one of the smarter Côte de Beaune reds; it has a great future ahead of it, and the price is keen, too.

    A blend of older vines or pinot fin from slightly younger ones. Vibrant magical purple, then the most gorgeous bouquet with a wonderful level of distinction and elegance from this great vineyard. Dark fruit throughout, very stylish, white pepper and spice, perhaps a touch of blackcurrant in with the raspberry, but this is brilliantly done and entirely balanced. The silkiest of tannins. 5 star wine

Producer

Domaine Chandon de Briailles

The sibling team at this stunning domaine (Francois and Claude de Nicolay) is most definitely a winning one. Their biggest influence has been to convert the estate firstly to organic and now to biodynamic methods of viticulture and vinification. The wines focus on sensual flavours and refinement, these are not powerful, but the aged vines allow for wines of extraordinary texture and complexity.

Region

Pernand Vergelesses

With its neighbours, Ladoix Serrigny and Aloxe-Corton, Pernand Vergelesses has its own village and premier cru appellations but shares the two grand crus: Corton, a red made from Pinot Noir, and Corton Charlemagne, a white made from Chardonnay. The limestone marl soil is well-suited to growing Chardonnay and the resulting white wines are crisp and mineral with a good capacity for ageing. Pinot Noir is planted in areas of redder iron-rich soil and the best vineyards produce charmingly soft red wines with classic notes of raspberries and violets.
