Domaine Vincent Rapet, Pernand Vergelesses

Tucked away in the village of Pernand Vergelesses at the northern end of the Côte de Beaune, and behind the hill of Corton, Vincent Rapet is producing consistently high quality Burgundy. This long established, family-run 20 hectare domaine fashions wines that are contemporary, authentic expressions of their origins. Vincent is a young talent who, alongside his wife Sylvette, brings more attention to the appellation. We have selected 4 wines with which to launch our collaboration with Vincent. Three white wines - a fresh, elegant Pernand Vergelesses Blanc ‘Devant les Cloux’, a more focused, refined Pernand Vergelesses Blanc ‘Les Combottes’ and a superbly built, tightly wound Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru.

From a .5 hectare parcel with prime southwest exposure, on the border of Savigny-les-Beaune and Pernand-Vergelesses.

Intense, concentrated fruit with raspberries and blackcurrant, its balanced, deep mouth and its finish supported by fine and elegant tannins.

Grape: Pinot Noir
