Pernand-Vergelesses Les Caradeux
1er Cru

Grape Variety : Chardonnay

Soil : Marly limestone with silt of clay.

Site : This vineyard of 1.90 hectare is ideally located on mid-slope close to the hill of Corton-Charlemagne. This is an exceptional "terroir" providing a unique minerality

The Vintage 2004 : Harvest took place at the end of September after a cool and humid Summer with short periods of very hot weather. The "tri", sorting of the grapes was drastic to keep only the very ripe berries. Aging in oak during 13 months

Tasting : Pale gold color with emerald tinges. Floral fragrances mixed with refreshing aromas of citrus fruit and enhanced by a beautiful minerality paired with a refined oak note. Well-balanced and well-structured. Good concentration. Harmonious combination supported by a well-integrated minerality. Long aftertaste.

Food pairing : To be enjoyed with seafood, fish, mild cheese or goat cheeses.
