Product Description

To quote The Burgundy Report's Bill Nanson, "The Île des Vergelesses is (in Pernand-Vergelesses terms) a quasi-Grand Cru - it has a depth and complexity that is often augmented with a cushioned texture from its tannins - the Chandon de Briailles bottling fits exactly to this template." It's a stunning, limestone-rich vineyard, relatively high up on the slope and directly facing the hill of Corton. The east-by-north-east exposure means that this vineyard is often picked quite late in the harvest, and it produces a wine of great depth of fruit, often with an intense minerality. This site is also home to the oldest vines of the Domaine, planted in 1938. The 2011, which saw just 5 per cent new oak, leaps from the glass while its finely embroidered structure and perfumed finish demonstrates the class of this terroir.
 
"Outstanding. There is more complexity here on both the nose and the palate with a perfumed mélange of fresh and pure red currant, plum and floral scents. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension and fine delineation to the seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that are notably permeated by an almost pungent minerality on the long, balanced and delicious finish. This is worth considering." 
90-92 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound
