The 2019 Savigny-Les-Beaune Les Vergelesses Premier Cru comes from an old-vine plot owned by Pascal within this vineyard which is in the shadow of the great hill of Corton. Les Vergelesses is planted to both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Pascal’s vines benefit from an ideal southern aspect on the undulating slope, and his careful biodynamic farming to balance the soil and ensure optimum vine health.

2019

Golden in the glass, this Chardonnay is enlivened by its grace, tension, and intensity. 30-year-old vines combined with a lower yielding year in 2019 led to a distinctive concentration of fruit. On the nose, the wine emanates aromas of apricot, yellow plum, orange blossom, pine needles, hazelnut and praline with just a hint of struck match.

Supple and viscous, the wine spreads across the palate with delightful weightiness and soft edges while a fine, orange-like acidity tickles the sides of the tongue helping to counterbalance the broader, richer strokes. Flavours of fleshy yellow peach, preserved lemon, quince and toasted almonds fill the palate. A congenial blend of stone fruit and citrus linger on to create a lengthy finish.

This wine possesses a wonderfully complex aromatic profile as well as a persistency of flavour that makes it particularly delicious to drink now, although it will certainly remain incredibly enjoyable for years to come.

Food Match

Serve with risotto verde or an elegant antipasto of vitello tonnato with fried capers and crusty bread.

Recommended Cellaring

Drink now and over the next 10 years.
