Côte de Nuits

The 2018 Savigny-Les-Beaune Les Vergelesses Premier Cru comes from an old-vine plot owned by Pascal within this vineyard which is in the shadow of the great hill of Corton. Les Vergelesses is planted to both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Pascal’s vines benefit from an ideal southern aspect on the undulating slope and his careful biodynamic farming to balance the soil and ensure optimum vine health. The wine is incredibly poised, lively and elegant, with a complex mix of fruit and savoury elements on the nose and palate. Most compelling is the extraordinary texture which drives great length and persistence of flavour across every crevice of the palate, and the distinct signature of Les Vergelesses, a fresh minerality which uplifts the sweet and savoury characters. This young white Burgundy is already incredibly balanced and moreish and will be highly enjoyable for years to come
