Pernand Vergelesses Les Belles Filles Jean Jacques Girard 2016
Pernand Vergelesses Les Belles Filles, Jean Jacques Girard, Cote de Beaune, Burgundy, 2016
100% Chardonnay aged in oak for 10 months.
Well-sited climat immediately opposite grand cru Corton Charlemagne. The same chalky soil gives great minerality to the wines and provides fine balancing acidity to the lush, honeyed fruit.
"The 2016 Pernand-Vergelesses Les Belles Filles has an impressive and well-defined bouquet with touches of peach skin, dried lemon and granite. The palate is crisp and taut on the entry, quite spicy and certainly brimming with energy. Is this really just a village cru? Worthy of a premier cru in my opinion.!" 91/100 Neal Martin robertparker.com
Great as an aperitif and fantastic with grilled seafood.
