Domaine Pernot Père & Fils - Gevrey-Chambertin 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.
Aged in normal size barrels with 20% new wood. A light crimson purple. The fruit is livelier than Croix Violettes. Good vines at the Brochon end, a lively raspberry fruit. Slightly saline finish with a little firmness to the tannins which will sort themselves out with time. Drink from 2025-2028. 89pts, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy 100% Pinot Noir.
