2008 Dubreuil-Fontaine, Pernand-Vergelesses Clos BerthetApr. 2011
The aromas are generous and all-enveloping – quite lovely. There is roundness and an acid-borne intensity that is perfectly balanced. Mouth-watering flavours linger in a good finish. Generous yet mineral, this is drinking perfectly right now – now how to keep my hands off more?
2007 Dubreuil-Fontaine, Pernand-Vergelesses Clos BerthetApr. 2011
The nose offers herbs and a slightly warm core of fruit. Full again but really open and right at the end there’s more length than the Sous Frétile.
2008 Dubreuil-Fontaine, Pernand-Vergelesses Clos BerthetApr. 2011
The aromas are more generous than those of the 07 – enveloping – lovely. Rounder, with seemingly more acidity, no-wonder it also seems more intense. There’s good minerality too – today I’d rather drink this than the 07. Lovely wine.

(Red) Lovely, lovely aromas. Supple with fine tannin and flavours that grow in the mouth – good value too.
2006 Dubreuil-Fontaine, Pernand-Vergelesses Clos BerthetMar. 2009
The 1.5 hectare Clos is surrounded by a wall and is a monopole of the domaine. It is planted with 1 hectare of chardonnay that is classed as a 1er cru and 0.5 hectares of pinot noir that is only classed as a villages as there’s no AOC for red 1er here. The vines have been in the family since 1969/70 and were rented by them even before that, and the average age is about 40 years. Christine says that this wine is more mineral than the ‘Sous Frétille’ and, hence, more typical of white Pernand-Vergelesses. There is an intense core of fruit on the nose that is also reflect on the palate. Perhaps a little riper than the ‘Sous Frétille’ but it shows a lovely minerality in the mid-palate. A lovely wine.

Medium colour. The aromas are sof soft red/black fruit and a floral note – perhaps peony. Fills your mouth quite well and there’s a stricking bitter chocolate aftertaste. Unpresumptuous and very tasty.
