Tasting Notes

An exciting new arrival on the scene in the Côte de Beaune is Alvina Pernot, granddaughter of Paul Pernot of Domaine Paul Pernot and cousin of Philippe Pernot of Domaine Pernot Belicard. After working for three years at her grandfather's Domaine, Alvina and her husband, Philippe Abadie, set up a tiny Domaine and Maison in Puligny-Montrachet. For the debut 2018 vintage, Alvina Pernot used no new oak, with all wines aged on their lees, in used barrels, until they were racked for bottling. Within the Pernot holdings, Alvina and her husband favor earlier-picked fruit. 

The 2021 Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru has quite an open and generous bouquet with apple blossom, nectarine and touches of persimmon. I would like a little more terroir expression here. The palate is smooth and slightly creamy on the entry, well balanced and certainly the richest of Pernot’s offerings in 2021, a crowd pleaser in many ways, yet it doesn’t quite deliver the same caliber as the Batard-Montrachet. Drink over the next decade. 91pts, Neal Martin, Vinous. 100% Chardonnay.

"Alvina Pernot is one of the most exciting new producers to hit our shores. From a phenomenal winemaking family, her style is precise, elegant and delicately reductive."

Alvina and her husband favour earlier-picked fruit and higher-altitude parcels within the large Pernot holdings. For the debut 2018 vintage, Alvina Pernot used no new oak, with all wines aged on their lees, in used barrels mainly from François Frères, until they were racked for bottling.
