Domaine Pernot Père & Fils - Gevrey-Chambertin "En Champs" 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.
Badly frosted in 2021 unfortunately. A fuller purple here and a very engaging nose. One third new wood, shows very slightly but in a good supporting role. Plump and classy then the whole bunches add significant zest behind, adding strawberry notes to the otherwise cherry fruits, and significantly extending the finish. Drink from 2025-2030. 91pts, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy 100% Pinot Noir.
