Pernand-Vergelesses Blanc ‘Les Combettes’ Domaine Vincent Rapet 2018
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.
The hillside is situated in the "climat"* "Les plantes des champs et combottes" and faces south-west extending from the village; the soil here is white, marly and fairly light. The rows are short with ditches in between to limit erosion.
