Alvina Pernot - Puligny-Montrachet "Rue aux Vaches" Magnum 2018

$328.00

The “Rue aux Vaches” unwinds in the glass generously, with citrus oil, Anjou pear, and white peach notes followed by savoury pastry aromas.

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. “Rue aux Vaches” is situated just below the famed Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru “Les Pucelles”, and the only cuvée to be fully processed in Alvina Pernot's home winery; it has also only been bottled in magnum this vintage.

The bouquet unwinds in the glass generously, with citrus oil, Anjou pear, and white peach notes followed by savoury pastry aromas. The concentrated palate displays white orchard fruit and zippy citrus, finishing with a saline edge. It matches perfectly with poultry served with creamy sauce, foie gras, charcuterie and a great range of seafood such as barramundi and shellfish. Drink now with a 30-minute decant before serving or age 2023+. 100% Chardonnay. MAGNUM 1500ml.

"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.
