Domaine Pernot Père & Fils - Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2021
Taking over the family domaine in 2018, Pascal Pernot quickly gained respect and admiration as a top Gevrey-Chambertin producer. Pascal’s great grandfather was chauffeur to the Liégard family of the Château de Brochon and subsequently inherited some vineyards (including the holding in La Croix Violette). The Domaine was established in 1900, with Pascal as the fourth generation, and surrounds the village of Brochon with a total of 7 ha.
Half aged in barrel and half in tank. The blend comes partly from the Prielles vineyard below Fixin, which provides the tension, and a clay plot below Brochon for a bit of flesh. Pale but with a purple tint. Very elegant pinot on the nose, promising. Attractive fruit on the palate, medium length, only a slight firmness, really cheerful pinot. Drink from 2024-2026.
