"There are many ways to the recognition of truth, and Burgundy is one of them.” – Isak Dinesen

For many, Burgundy IS the definition of wine. We rarely have access to enough of ANYTHING to send out an email offer, so we are particularly thrilled to have this Les Vergelesses Premier Cru from the coveted Delarche family. 2018 is a warm and generous vintage and this is drinking spectacularly right now. Pernand-Vergelesses is tucked into the junction of two valleys among the hills of the Côte de Beaune. The nearby Hill of Corton stands guard over it and two other villages, Aloxe-Corton and Ladoix-Serrigny, harboring prestigious Grands Crus: Corton in red and Corton-Charlemangne in white. Pernand, with its steep, sloping site and clay/limestone soils creates a complex fruitprofile rich in strawberry, kirsch and “sappy” fruit.

An INCREDIBLE value for Premier Cru level juice and a wine that will continue to provide pleasure for the next 5-7 years! We only wish we had more…literally just 108 bottles!

About the Producer

Etienne Delarche operates a 9-hectare family estate in the towns of Pernand-Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton. It was Marius, the grandfather, who took over his wife Jeanne's vineyards in the 1950s. Then his son, Philippe, in 1987, gave a new boom by planting new plots and building a winery-cave complex on 3 levels. In 2016, Etienne and his brother, Thomas, wanted to expand the range of wines on offer by creating a trading company. After buying the grapes at the time of the harvest, Etienne vinifies them in the same way as the Domaine's. The viticultural process is still plowed by horses and manually harvested, ensuring the utmost care in the grape sorting and handling.

From a south-southeast facing vineyard of 40-year-old vines, the 2018 Pernand-Vergelesses Rouge 1er Cru Les Vergelesses has a bright, framboise, wild strawberry, spice, and sappy flower-driven bouquet to go with a juicy, medium-bodied style on the palate. With sweet tannins, beautiful purity, and a fresh, lively style, this is another gorgeous 2018 that's going to keep for 15-20 years.
