2018 LOUIS JADOT Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Ile des Vergelesses 75cl (Burgundy, France)
Style - Elegant
Grapes - 100% Pinot Noir
Tasting - Pure elegance in a bottle. There’s a touch of violet about the nose: very pure, red and black, with their spice. The palate finds lovely rich and very beautiful dark domestic fruit of cherries supported by tacky-rich, nutty tannins.
FYI: Despite Jadot being one of the bigger producers in Burgundy this particular wine is one of the rarest in their range; only one barrels worth is produced per year. When we tasted it we thought it was so good we snapped it all up - a year in advance! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did then and still do now.
