A wonderfully fresh nose evidences a notably cool array of dark currant, floral and distinct earth scents. The well-delineated medium weight flavors possess an overt minerality as well as a saline character that adds a refreshing quality to the ever-so-slightly dry finish though in this case the supporting tannins are clearly riper and thus the backend is more persistent. 88/2018+

The 2013 Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Ile de Vergelesses has a light raspberry and briary-scented nose with stony scents surfacing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline entry, fine tannins with a sharp slightly grainy texture. It is just missing a little substance compared to the 2012 last year.
