2018 Delarche Pernand Vergelesses Belles Filles
Domaine Marius Delarche, a small and fastidiously run property in the hills of Pernand-Vergelesses. ’Les Belles Filles’ sits adjacent to premier cru ‘Caradeaux’ yet further north, deeper within the “combe” or valley of Pernand. Vines face north/northeast at altitude, making it a much cooler site. Soils combine clay, limestone and sand.
Vines are cared for as closely to organic principles as possible, but the estate is not certified. All grapes are harvested by hand.
For whites, Chardonnay grapes are de-stemmed and pressed delicately in a horizontal, pneumatic press. Juice is fermented on indigenous yeasts in older French oak barrels; the estate’s Corton-Charlemagne is fermented and aged in new oak. All wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered.
