Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from September 15 2021

Wine: 2014 Pernand-Vergelesses "Aux Vergelesses"

Producer: Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard

Comment: Here too discreet wood frames a fresh and markedly ripe nose of plum and black currant liqueur aromas that are liberally laced with spice and earth nuances. There is excellent volume to the attractively concentrated and textured middle weight flavors that possess a suave mouth feel while retaining a fine sense of energy and detail on the lingering and sappy finish. Note that moderate patience will be required before this beauty will be approachable.

Score: 92 Drink: 2024+
