What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...
A consistently formidable wine that is sourced from four separate vineyard sites within the boundaries of Pernand. The average age of the vines is approximately 40 years. A classic representation of the “taste” of Pernand with its intense minerality, hints of fennel and honey and broad-shouldered appearance. Aged on its lees for twelve months and bottled without filtration, it is particularly ageworthy. We buy five barrels per year (1,500 bottles) for the US market.

While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!
