2008 Domaine Chandon de Briailles Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Ile des Vergelesses
- Côte de Beaune
- Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru
Community Tasting Notes 7
August 30, 2016 - A surprisingly evolved, pale ruby with orange around the edges. Also surprisingly evolved on the palate, with gentle acids and soft, pretty, dried fruit. Firmed up a little on the second night, which led me to believe there is perhaps more left in the tank than I first thought, but I would still err on the side of drinking this sooner rather than later.

May 15, 2016 - I liked this best with a short decant; out of the gate it really did show a lovely Pernand profile, full of red fruits and minerality. With time it took on a bit of a Savigny-like blood/tomato kind of thing which was nice in moderation but eventually detracted from the fruit. An excellent value.

May 10, 2011 - This is basically like staring at a construction site when the only thing there is the foundation. There is a lot here to build on, but nothing else is really evident. At the moment it is basically a showcase of the techniques used to make it, primarily the whole-cluster treatment -- with its pale, translucent color and a mouthfeel that's linear, precise, and tensile, it's about as perfect a textbook example of what whole clusters do to a wine as you could ever hope to find. Within that frame the fruit has a fairly gentle touch and a chocolatey oak aroma dissipated with airtime. And that's pretty much all I can say about it.

April 16, 2011 - Nice showing for this wine; however, it was overshadowed by the previous '99 Rousseau "Clos de la Roche". This offers aromatics of red cherry, spice, floral and funky earthy notes. The medium bodied palate shows good balance with a somewhat shortened finish. This very good wine lacks the overall harmony that would make it outstanding. This may benefit from a few years of additional bottle age.
