Domaine Chandon de Briailles Pernand Vergelesses Ile de Vergelesses Blanc 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Domaine Chandon de Briailles|
The 2018 Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Ile de Vergelesses Blanc is quite powerful this year, exhibiting aromas of mirabelle plum, ripe citrus and fresh pastry, followed by a medium to full-bodied, textural and enveloping palate that's fleshy and unctuous, structured by chalky dry extract.
The 2018 Pernand-Vergelesses Ile de Vergelesses 1er Cru Blanc has a taut, fresh, quite mineral-driven bouquet that delivers scents of chalk and lemon zest with aplomb. The palate is very well balanced with a fine thread of acidity, and what it lacks in length, it compensates with energy.
