Alvina Pernot - Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018

$65.00

This Bourgogne emerges with concentrated, ripe peach and green apple 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. This Bourgogne is made up of two parcels of 50-plus-year-old vines from the village of Puligny-Montrachet.

The bouquet emerges with concentrated, ripe peach and green apple notes followed by bright citrus and wet stone aromas. The palate is fresh and lively with sappy fruit shining through alongside fresh acidity. It can be paired with raclette cheese, roast poultry, rich oysters, crayfish, scallops and white fish. You can drink it now by with a 30-minute decant before serving or cellar it up until 2025+. 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.
