Domaine Chandon de Briailles Pernand-Vergelesses 'Vergelesses' Premier Cru 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Spicy and perfumy on the nose with a strong floral scent, some pink peppercorn spice, a little hint of medicinal spice and touches of sweet and smoky wood, though with time this takes on a bit of candied ripeness. Light, fresh and tight on entry with dusty tannins and bright acidity supporting a taut core of raspberry fruit over mineral earth base with a fine, long, tight finish. More about promise than performance today, this seems to be well-equipped to evolve positively in the cellar. I wouldn’t try another for 4 years. 89pts

Domaine Chandon:
Domaine Chandon is one of the most recommended wineries in the Napa Valley, and the only one with its own 4-star restaurant. The winery established its reputation with sparkling wines, and in 1989, the winery began crafting still wines from the classic Champagne varietals Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier.
