Wine SpectatorSpice and earth notes flank a core of cherry in this juicy red, which shows firm grip on the finish, with solid length and a chalky aftertaste. Best from 2016 through 2023. 734 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Ile des Vergelesses comes from their 3.13 hectares of vines that average around 40 years in age. It has an expressive bouquet with abundant red cherries and raspberry preserve scents intermixed with hints of wet tobacco. The palate offers fine depth on the entry and good structure. There is a palpable sense of tension here, although a more benevolent season would have bestowed greater persistency. Drink now-2018.
