Maison Champy Pernand-Vergelesses

AOC Pernand-Vergelesses, Burgundy

These vineyards cover the hilly slopes of Aloxe-Corton and Savigny-lès-Beaune. There are only four Premier Crus Pinot Noirs: “Les Fichots”, “En Caradeux”, “Creux de la Net”, “Iles des Hautes et Basses Vergelesses”. Two new “clos” have also received the appellation Premier Cru: “Clos du Village” and “Clos Berthier”.

Tasting Notes

Pale golden colour with hints of green. Good aromatic intensity and brilliant. The nose opens on white flower, citrus and wild mint notes, with a mineral touch. Frank, fresh and elegant attack. On the palate, the wine is rich, with a long persistent and mineral finish.

Perfectly partnered with shellfish such as prawns à la Provençale, saffron scallops, or fishes and poultry in creamy or spicy sauces, such as a fricassée of Bresse in a gingerbread sauce, a tagine of fish, or ewe cheese.

Fermented and aged for 10 months in 30% new barrels.

    "Lemon, apple and light spice notes ply this moderately rich white. Balanced and bright, with a solid finish. Drink now through 2023. 1,500 cases made, 400 cases imported."

    Wine Spectator, August 2018

    "Shows fine intensity to the lemon, apple, stone and spice flavors here, backed by vivid acidity. Lean, building to a long, stony aftertaste, with a chalky sensation. Drink now through 2023. 500 cases made."
