Domaine Paul Pernot. New to Our Portfolio. Exceptional 2011 Grand Cru & Premier White Burgundies


Pernot 2011 Header

A Serious Domaine with great holdings in Puligny-Montrachet.

One of Clive Coates "Great Domaines of Burgundy"

  

Domaine Paul Pernot is, by Burgundian standards, quite large at 20 hectares. The best wines are domaine bottled but much of the production is under contract to negociants (particularly Maison Joseph Drouhin). 

 

However, things are changing. The new generation has different ideas and skills and the tremendous vineyard holdings are now starting to be maximized by the domaine.

 

Domaine Paul Pernot dates back to 1959. The original domaine was 10 hectares, much of which was fallow due the difficulties post World War II. Paul and his father replanted the best land in the 1960s and '70s and as Clive Coates says  "After thirty years of non-cultivation, the vines did well and are now in their prime and producing superlative wine".

 

Pernot Bienvenues Label Pernot's holdings include the Grand Crus Batard-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet and the serious Premier Crus Les Pucelles, Les Folatieres, Clos de la Garenne and, for the first time in 2011, Champ Canet (normally sold to Drouhin). The vineyard holdings in Les Folatieres are large (3.08 hectares) but the rest of the vineyards are all well under a hectare.

 

With around 80% of production sold off to negociants it is not surprising that these wines are hard to find. I have regularly tasted the wines over the last decade and developed a love of them. Finally, the connection has been made and we are delighted to add the domaine to our portfolio.

 

The first vintage we offer is 2011. 2011 is another small vintage in Burgundy. The fruit was uncommonly clean and Clive Coates says "Yes. It would appear that Burgundy has done it again....we have another big one to follow 2008, 2009, and 2010. Nature is smiling on the Burgundy lover." 

 

Madame Lalou Bize  from Domaine Leroy says "We are beginning to get spoilt with all these fine vintages...we are very happy with our 2011s." 

 

We are very pleased to present the wines of Domaine Paul Pernot. Being a small vintage and our first purchase we do not have a large amount of wine to offer. If you would like some Batard, Bienvenues, Pucelles or Champ Canet you will need to buy across the range. That way everyone can enjoy a little of these terrific white Burgundies.
