2010 Rapet, Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Ile des Vergelesses
Medium, medium-plus colour. There’s plenty of CO2 so this benefits from a vigorous shake (or two). There’s a very pretty depth of dark-red fruit and eventually some violets in the mix too. In the mouth this is round and has a furry texture from the tannins before a lovely, mouth-watering acidity and pretty red fruit flavours take over. There is plenty of structure here but the fruit has nothing forced about it, indeed it’s altogether lighter, less musky and more ethereal than other producers’ ‘Iles’ (but I haven’t tasted their 10s so…). Here is a beautiful extra dimension of fresh flavour – it’s currently a complex and very beautiful wine but with 5 o’clock shadow from the tannins.
Rebuy – Yes
