Pernand-Vergelesses, “Les Vergelesses” premier cru 2014

Grape (s): Pinot noir

Producer: Domaine Dominique Guyon

Where: good old chez Nicolas. 500 stores in France.

Generous red fruit hold their own in this barrel-aged wine made from 30-year-old vines. Pomegranate, red currant and cranberry rest at ease with shaved oak and spicy saddle wood constructing a sensuous nose. A little gamey with tannins on edge, this wine could keep a while longer in bottle but drinks delightfully right now thanks to its savory attributes and long finish. A nice one to test your cheese pairing skills.
