The village of Pernand-Vergelesses is located just 3km from Aloxe-Corton and of all the villages that the Grand Cru hill of Corton looks over, this is the most picturesque. The parcel “En Caradeux”, located mid-slope and exposed to the East, faces the hill of Corton. These vines are worked traditionally by the winemakers of Domaine Louis Latour. The soil is stony and the basement is composed of marl and flint limestone which gives a typical particularity of this terroir.

Tasting Note :

Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru “En Caradeux” is pale yellow in colour with a powerful bouquet. It is fat in the mouth with grilled almond aromas. The wine is rich and round and very balanced with a certain tension on the finish. The oak is nicely mellow and the wine has very nice length. A very pretty wine which is already very flattering.

Food Pairing :

Shellfish – fish.
