2021 Delarche Pernand Vergelesse Les Boutieres VV
It’s easy to miss the petite hamlet of Pernand-Vergelesses, hiding behind bulk of the noble Corton hill. Yet this Côte de Beaune village, with its impeccable vineyards, is a treasure trove of refined Burgundy wines. For more than three generations, the Delarche family has crafted authentic, earthy and expressive Burgundy in Pernand, much under the radar of the Burgundy cognoscenti. Yet Delarche Burgundy offers a clarity and purity of flavor that is captivating; whites are creamy and concentrated, taking a cue from Corton-Charlemagne, while reds are spicy and refined, seductive from the moment they’re bottled yet able to age effortlessly for years.
Domaine Etienne Delarche was established in the 1940s and the wine is currently being made by Etienne Delarche.The vineyards border Savigny, ‘Boutières’ faces southeast, at the foot of the slope, touching premier crus ‘Vergelesses’ and ‘Les Fichots.’ The soils are deep, clay-rich and the vines are old...70+ years.
The grapes are hand-harvested before destemming. They are fermented on indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks, aged in older French barrels (10% new) for one year, before being bottled, unfined and unfiltered.
Aromas of black fruits, licorice, earth, light pepper. Juicy and fleshy, with good energy; bramble fruit, violet candy
