Pernand-Vergelesses Premier Cru "Île de Vergelesses"

Pernand-Vergelesses Premier Cru "Île de Vergelesses"

AOP Pernand-Vergelesses "Île de Vergelesses" Premier Cru

Winemaker notes

It has been suggested that Île de Vergelesses, arguably the top site in the Pernand-Vergelesses appellation, could be a contender for Grand Cru status in the Côtes de Beaune. The wines offer medium-body, with great concentration and structure, ideal for long cellaring. 

Viticultural Notes

The estate's Île de Vergelesses Premier Cru parcels are located in the middle of the slope facing south-southeast, promoting a more gradual ripening. The elevation is 250m above sea level. Laleure-Piot counts Debreuil-Fontaine among its neighboring vignerons in this premier cru site. Soils are iron-rich clay marl with a large proportion of limestone, very similar in composition to neighboring Corton Grand Cru.
