No all Bourgogne is created equal! A terrific value White from Puligny-Montrcahet‏

Bourgogne Blanc from Puligny-Montrachet. Does Bourgogne get any better?

  

Most domaines in Burgundy produce a Bourgogne red and/or white. What I have come to learn is that the vineyards from which the grapes are sourced invariably lie close to the domaine. Producers in Nuits-St-Georges make a Bourgogne rouge from grapes grown near Nuits and domaines in Meursault feature grapes from the Meursault and environs.

 

So it comes as no surprise that Paul Pernot, who is located in the centre of Puligny-Montrachet, makes a Bourgogne Blanc from grapes grown around his village.

 

And what a Bourgogne it is! 

 

The mineral, citrus and white flowers one sees in Puligny-Montrachet are there in spades in this 2012 Bourgogne. For those not in the know 2012 is another serious vintage. It reminds me of 2010 but with a little more flesh on the bones. It is a lovely combination of fruit depth and mineral race. Very delicious!

 

The only problem with 2012, particularly from the Cote de Beaune, is that quatities produced are very small.

 

We have just 15 cases of the Paul Pernot Bourgogne 2012 to offer. If you like drinking Puligny-Montrachet but your budget does not match your taste I suggest you grab some of this wine. I think it is of Villages quality at less than half the price.

Pernot Bourgogne Label Fresh, bright, lifted nose. White flowers, white stonefruit, minerals and a citrus note leaves little doubt as to the source of the material. Lively in the mouth with an acid zing. Really quite serious for a Bourgogne and superior to many villages-level white Burgundies tasted this trip. It does not come better at this level.

 

Pernot bottles this wine quite early to ensure the freshness is retained. It is a great success in 2012.
