Domaine Chandon de Briailles Pernand-Vergelesses Île des Vergelesses 2017 / 750 ml.

Item#: 43601

VN91+91–93 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2019
The 2017 Pernand-Vergelesses Ile de Vergelesses 1er Cru comes from an east-facing hill equally balanced between clay and limestone, averaging 45-year-old vines. (It was supposed to be classified Grand Cru in 1936 but was denied because it can suffer in cooler vintages.) The bouquet is fresh and detailed, featuring mineral-rich dark berry fruit laced with bay leaf and black tea. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. This comes replete with crunchy red berry fruit laced with cracked black pepper and an insistent grip toward the almost Morey-like finish. A very sophisticated Ile de Vergelesses that should give 12 to 15 years of drinking pleasure.

Deeper, more multidimensional and more complete than the Les Vergelesses, the 2017 Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Ile de Vergelesses offers up scents of sweet berries, forest floor, wild plums and grilled meats. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with a quiet presence and impressive length. It’s the king of the premiers crus from Chandon de Briailles this year.

Where It's From

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

From the southern side of this large premier cru, the 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (Maison Louis Jadot) offers up appealing aromas of plums, pomegranate, espresso roast, raw cocoa and spices. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with good depth and concentration and a broad-shouldered chassis of fine but chalky tannin. This looks promising. (William Kelley)
VN90+90–92 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2019
The 2017 Volnay Clos des Chênes 1er Cru manifests quite potent marine scents on the nose, touches of kelp and marsh tincturing the mainly black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, offering ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit laced with orange peel and marmalade. This has good density and similar length to the Clos de la Barre, if not quite the same precision. Still, this is a fine Volnay.

A beam of pure cherry marks this elegant red, with violet, black pepper and iron accents. Taut and toned, with a lingering echo of cherry on the long aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2036. 650 cases made, 400 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

ST9191 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Mar/Apr 2014
Good bright red. Ripe raspberry and graphite aromas are perked up by a whiff of blood orange. Supple, sappy and intense, with an exotic suggestion of spun sugar leavened by a slightly herbal quality that carries through to the saline, firm finish. Very fresh wine, particularly in light of its high 3.8 pH, and in need of a good four or five years of cellaring.
