Chandon de Briailles Pernand Vergelesses 1er Cru Ile de Vergelesses 2014

This is a stunning, limestone-rich vineyard, relatively high up on the slope and directly facing the hill of Corton. The cool east-by-north-east exposure means that this vineyard is often picked quite late in the harvest, and it produces a wine with great depth of fruit yet equally with an intense minerality.

Product Description

This is a stunning, limestone-rich vineyard, relatively high up on the slope and directly facing the hill of Corton. The cool east-by-north-east exposure means that this vineyard is often picked quite late in the harvest, and it produces a wine with great depth of fruit yet equally with an intense minerality. This site is also home to some of the oldest vines of the Domaine, planted in 1938. 100% of the old wines vinified with whole bunches (the overall average was 70%) and the wine was matured in 20% new oak. Unfortunately there is precious little wine from 2014; the yield was cut to 15 hectolitres per hectare by the hail. Here the nose plays right on the edge of reduction though not so much that the pretty mélange of dark currant, lilac, earth and spice hints are completely masked. I would however suggest decanting this if you're tempted to try a bottle upon release. Otherwise there is plenty of verve to the beautifully detailed and notably saline middle weight flavors that deliver excellent persistence on the firm, mildly austere and balanced finish. Like the Fourneaux there is a backend hint of bitter cherry but it shouldn't last. Sweet Spot, Outstanding 92 points, Allen Meadows, burghound.com issue 62
