There is more aromatic density vs. the villages Pernand. Rounder with excellent texture, more complexity and super length. Looking at the price, what’s not to like(?)
This south-facing vineyard has been in the family for a long time, and was promoted to 1er cru in 2000. 2005 was actually the first vintage as a 1er cru chez Dubreuil-Fontaine as the vines were too young in 2000. The wine is obviously nice and fresh – though Christine says that this is the least mineral Pernand white. The mid-palte shows well with plenty of intensisty and also finishes freshly.
