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. Same soil structure and height as its famous neighbour. The only difference is the East exposure of the "Caradeux" which makes of this plot an exceptional "terroir" providing unique mineral characteristics.

The Vintage 2009 : After a cold winter and a beautiful spring, the hot summer was interrupted by stormy intervals which fortuitously took place when needed and thus facilitated growth and good maturation of the grapes. Harvest began early September with excellent weather conditions. Aging in oak during 16 months.

Tasting : Pale golden colour. Very pure citrus mixed with apricot. Beautiful minerality and delicate oak note. Complex and well-structured. Beautiful minerality. Taut and fresh. Long and refreshing finish.

Food pairing : To be enjoyed with seafood, fish, and mild cheeses.
