Less known appellation of the Côte de Beaune in Burgundy, Pernand-Vergelesses offers wines often very balanced and very refined. Part of the Corton Charlemagne are in the town of Pernand Vergelesses, showing the qualitative potential of the wines from this appellation, and in particular the Pernand-Vergelesses Blancs.

With a sparkling yellow color that invites pleasure, the wine offers the nose a very complex bouquet that is both flowery and fruity. On the palate a beautiful roundness that accompanies aromas of wild flowers and dried fruits.

The delicate vinification in oak barrels provides structure and completes the aromatic palette with very subtle vanilla notes. This white wine from Burgundy Pernand Vergelesses appellation comes from one of the best estates on the Côte de Beaune, Domaine Rollin.

Operating temperature: 13 to 14°

Pernand Vergelesses

Wine Characteristics

Red: to the eye, Pernand-Vergelesses is an intense ruby colour with bluish highlights, or an intense crimson. In the early stages the nose is of strawberry, raspberry, and violet. When older, it evolves into underbrush and spices. The mouth is unaggressive but muscular with well-melted tannins.
Meaty and robust, its fleshy constitution has all the harmony one could wish for.


White: this wine is white gold or pale yellow turning darker gold with age. It boasts aromas of white flowers, (may, acacia) at first; later, notes of amber, honey and spices. On the palate it is mineral, harmonious and easy to like.
 

Wine Steward’s Tip

Red: fleshy and solid, this is a very seductive wine. With its virile but superbly melted tannins its natural preference is for relatively forceful meats like veal, roasted, braised or in sauce, leg of lamb, feathered game, or grilled pork.
Roast beef would also yield to its charms. From the cheese board: Mont d’Or, Vacherin, Tomme de Savoie, Reblochon, Cîteaux.
Serving tempeature: 15 to 16°C.


White: light, lively, and engaging, this is the first choice for sushi, which it would enliven while respecting its double texture - crunchy and mellow. The same goes for fresh-water fish in white sauce, and for pasta or a seafood risotto, to any of which its vivacity will lend depth and contrast. It also chimes well with cheeses of the Gruyère type, as with blue and goat cheeses.
Serving temperature: 10 to 12°C.

Situation

Pernand-Vergelesses is tucked into the junction of two valleys among the hills of the Côte de Beaune. The nearby Hill of Corton stands guard over it and two other villages, Aloxe-Corton and Ladoix-Serrigny, harboring prestigious Grands Crus: Corton in red and Corton-Charlemangne in white. Pernand with its sloping site and steep streets has a smiling face. It has an important place in French cultural history: Jacques Copeau (1879-1949), a driving force behind the French theatrical renaissance of the 1920’s and promoter of a “decentralised” dramatic tradition, spent a large part of his life here and it was Pernand which saw the genesis of the “Copiaus”, a group of great actors whose work and whose spirit still lives on today.

Terroirs


Most of the vineyards face East or South with a few facing North-East. Altitudes: 250-300 metres. On the lower slopes are clayey-limestone soils mixed with “chaillots” (flinty residues from silcaceous limestones). These soils are easilyworked and rich in potassium and phosphoric acid. Mid-slope, the pebbly limestone soils suit the Pinot Noir, and at the top, the brown or yellowish marly soil harbours the Chardonnay.
