Pernand Vergelesses 1er Cru Sous Fretille
BACKGROUND

Domaine Antonin Guyon is one of the most prestigious estates in the Côte d’Or, as well as one of the largest family-owned wineries in the region. It was started in the 1960s by Antonin Guyon with parcels of land in Gevrey and Meursault. Today, the massive 47 hectare property is controlled and operated today by Antonin’s sons, Dominique and Michel and produces wines of impeccable quality from 15 different appellations, which includes many renowned villages from the region. An exceptional range of Premier and Grands Crus.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

Pernand-Vergelesses is located northwest of Beaune. The very steep slopes here enjoy good south-easterly exposure and white marl soils, predominantly limestone. The 1er Cru Sous Frètille is at the top of the Corton hill, just above the Gran Cru Corton Charlemagne itself. Grapes are hand-harvested and then carried in small boxes to the cellars, where they are sorted. Fermentation takes place in oak casks between 64-68°F. Lees are stirred in the casks twice a week. The wine is aged for 15 months in French oak barrels.

TASTING NOTES

A brilliant golden color, with flowery aromas and hints of hazelnuts. An elegant wine with a lot of finesse and freshness. Serve with cooked fish or white meat with creamy sauces.
