François Martenot. Sitting majestically on the hills around Meursault, it symbolises the richness and diversity of Bourgogne with its lovely selection of Regional, Villages, Premier Cru and Grand Cru appellations from the Chablis area, the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune.
In the northwest of the Côte de Beaune, the village of Pernand-Vergelesses is nestled between 2 coombs, on the hillside.
Clay and limestone soils mixed with "chert" (siliceous residues from flint limestone).
Harvest by hand. Traditional vinification. The grapes are pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery in pneumatic presses. The alcoholic fermentation is carried
out in oak barrels. The wine is aged for 10 months in oak barrels with regular stirring to gain depth and complexity.
Pale yellow colour with golden reflections.
The nose is expressive with citrus fruits that are lightly vanilla-flavoured.
The palate has a nice mineral flavour with a complex oaky and a well-balanced finish, qualified with fresh almonds and lime.
Marries perfectly with tender meat, fried river fish, sea fish in white sauce, hot shellfish, poultry in a beautiful creamy sauce (eg stew) and frog legs. It can also be drunk as an aperitif. Hard cheeses: Comté, Beaufort, Emmental...
