2017 Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Île des Vergelesses, Chandon de Briailles

This, from the top plot within the commune of Pernand-Vergelesses, excelled in 2017. It’s chalky and delicate, with dark fruit, flowers, and beautifully refined tannins. With good length and depth of flavour, it's quite a well-balanced example of the freshness and fruit that this terroir can produce, all with lovely tannins.

2017 Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Île des Vergelesses, Chandon de Briailles
Domaine Chandon de Briailles

This beautiful house constructed between 1690 and 1705 has been home to the de Nicolay family since 1834. Current incumbent Claude, frequently flanked by her lovely dogs (one adorably called Darling!), creates elegant wines from appellations sometimes known for their more bucolic styles. Farmed biodynamically since 2005, this is a set of wines that punch well above their weight.
