Tasting Notes

Alvina Pernot has a new winery on Puligny's Rue de Bois, a facility that will give them all the space they need to master the élevage and, increasingly, the pressing of the fruit that produces their wines. After working for three years at her grandfather's Domaine Paul Pernot, Alvina and her husband, Philippe, set up a tiny domaine & maison in Puligny-Montrachet. In 2020, this label's most successful vintage to date, La Rue Aux Vaches was joined by another Puligny lieu-dit cuvée that's pressed in house, the Clos des Noyers Brets.

Pale lemon and lime. Slight cats pee to the nose, very different in style to Rue aux Vaches. Then a burst of exciting fruit on the palate, fresh yet ripe apricots, not so ripe as to induce peaches, and with a salivatory acidity. Another beautiful village cuvée. 92 points, Jasper Morris. 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.
