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 unique mineral characteristics.

The Vintage 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful white wines with fantastic acidity. Aged in French oak for 8 months.

Tasting : Pale golden colour. Ripe citrus and honey aromas. Touch of cashew nut. Lively, well-structured and generous. Mineral palate with an intense linear finish.

Food pairing : To be enjoyed with seafood, fish, and mild cheeses. Gold Medal International Wine Challenge 2008
