Alvina Pernot - Puligny-Montrachet "Vieilles Vignes" 2018

$158.00

This “Vieilles Vignes” is immediately expressive, with white floral aromas and ripe stone fruit perfume leaping from the glass.

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. The "Vieilles Vignes" comes from a vineyard planted in 1982 from "Les Enseignères" and "Perrieres."

This Puligny-Montrachet is immediately expressive, with white floral aromas, ripe stone fruit and honeysuckle perfume leaping from the glass.The palate is precise with intensity and volume; a myriad of white and yellow orchard fruit, citrus characters and rocky minerality mark the experience. It will pair perfectly with fine foods such as foie gras, caviar, oysters, crayfish, scallops and white fish. Drink now with a 30-minute decant before serving or cellar it up until 2028+. 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.
