Pernand Vergelesses, Côte De Beaune

Domaine Patrick Javillier

Pernand-Vergelesses Pinot Noir 2018

Dark ruby red. Inviting nose and lush medium palate of earthy black cherry, fresh mushroom, and slightly woody red plum. Medium acidity. Medium minus tannins. A Burgundy for the New World drinker. Just enough fruit and a well regulated militia of oak, tannins, and acidity make for a PN that’s true to its roots yet approachable to the novice. A wide variety of cuisines will pair nicely. I went with very authentic (read, “spicy”) Ethiopian fare. Drink now through 2028. — 15 days ago

Ile des Vergelesses Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2003


Very closed in the first hour or so through dinner but then opened up nicely. Red berries earth forest floor flowed into an acidic but lively and balanced palate and biting finish. Will see over next several days in Eto. Perhaps still need more time but already an excellent pairing for the ribs. 12.5 ABV. — 23 days ago

Les Fichots Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

Lyle Fass

My last bottle and age your Fichots! Please! This is glorious. 19 is close to 12 in spirit I think. What a nose. Ebullient, expressive and pure. Black raspberry and black cherry with a spicey earthy note. Floral and underbrush but clear. Just gorgeous and will only get better with air. Air and Fichots work well together. Ahh, the classic Fichots structure. Stoney, straight and long. Always needs an hour to open at any age but the length, balance and wow that length are there. Incredible fruit amplitude and volume. Sappy and pure. Wonderful finesse has arrived after some air. Just a beautiful wine and one of the best values of red burgundy I’ve ever encountered. It’s great every year but some years like 12/19 are better than other. Also 14. — 2 months ago

2004 Burgs vs CA Pinots. BH90 but I found it too lean, as was typical of that vintage. — 12 days ago

les combottes pernand vergelesses Chardonnay 2017

2021/6. PYCM basically never disappoints. I’m not very familiar with this vineyard (it looks like it’s on a south-facing slope in the side-valley that split off at Pernand, which sounds like it should have potential). This basically has all the elements you could want in a classic Côte de Beaune white - lemon curd, flowers, stone, butter - with a nice backbone of acidity and a savory, tangy finish. — a month ago

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2004

Pop and 1.5 hrs slow ox. My initial read on this was that it was slightly faded, but I think that might just be a stylistic choice. Lovely bright nose, with good lemon and apple, but surprisingly light in style and surprisingly soft for a Corton Charlemagne. On the palate: fresh, with good acidity. Again, surprisingly soft. Maybe more Pernand-Vergelesses 1er than CC in my book. Ok. — 2 months ago

Les Vergelesses Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2005

Very dark ruby robe, almost blackish. Dense and concentrate like most 05s, you have to swirl strong to get some reticent blackcurrants and flowers on the nose. Really interesting mouth that is still marked by the richness of the year and needs more time to show its soil. Should be really good in 7 to 10 years if it sheds the excess. — a month ago
