  • The village of Pernand-Vergelesses is located just 3km from that of Aloxe-Corton and of all the villages that the Grand Cru hill of Corton looks over, this is the most picturesque. The parcel "En Caradeux", located mid-slope and exposed to the East, faces the hill of Corton. These vines are worked traditionally by the winemakers of Domaine Louis Latour. The soil is stony and the basement is composed of marl and flint limestone which gives the typical particularity of this terroir.

      There is excellent energy to the more obviously mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that are shaped by a firmer acid spine on the balanced, refreshing and more complex finale.

      The first of several 2014s just before dinner. A fine way to start with this fresh and brisk white, that includes richness on the palate. White stone fruit as well as vanilla on this youthful palate leading to a fresh finish.

    • Pernand-Verglesses 1er Cru "En Caradeux" 2014 - Burgundy Report - January 2016 - "Super length"

      A big, bright fresh and open nose. - a very heavily perfumed wine. Lithe and fresh in the mouth with good mid-palate density. Round, Again a very perfumed fruit. (...) The balance and intensity are good. Super length though. (cask sample) By Bill Nanson (UK)

    • Pernand Verglesses 1er Cru "En Caradeux" 2013- Tom Cannavan's - August 2015 - 90/100

      Flint and intense complex notes, a bit of wood evident, but plenty of ripeness. The palate has cool orchard fruits, a lime-like intensity, and a decisive acidity in the finish. Juicy and concentrated. (UK)

    • Pernand-Vergelesse 1er Cru "En Caradeux" 2013 - Burgundy Report - December 2014 - "Intense"High tones, something floral - but a discrete nose. Intense, quite some weight too eventually more round. There's plenty of acidity. But actually, I'd like a little more energy - this wine seems a little too self-absorbed today - that said the finish
      is lovely and lingering...
    • Pernand-Vergelesse 1er Cru "En Caradeux" 2012 - Burgundy Report - June 2014 - "Savoury"Cask sample. The nose has some sweetness and bread notes(...). The palate seems sweet and savoury at the same time. Whilst there's no denying the concentration here, it seems to be lacking a bit of energy today - good flavour though.
    • Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru "En Caradeux" 2011 - Wine Enthusiast - October 2014 - 91/100While this wine demonstrates the telltale cool element of the appellation, it also offers ripe fruit, pear and peach flavors lightly layered with wood. The wine is crisp at the end, with a mineral aftertaste. Drink from 2016. Online Exclusive (USA)
