Lets face it … I’m not a big admirer of the Pernand Vergelesses terroir – but this effort from Mongeard is actually a quite lovely wine. The Pernand Vergelesses Les Vergelesses 1er cru 2010 from Mongeard-Mugneret is a very expressive and straight forward pinot. In the bouquet cool red fruit – raspberries and forest strawberries – with a clear hint of both the domaine style and origin. On the palate juicy red fruit – a quite good concentration – lovely balance with a firmness from the terroir. The fruit expression is perhaps more Mongeard-Mugneret than Pernand, and the Vosne origin of the producer is also detectable …. and thats in my view not a bad thing in a Pernand. Summing up – a lovely and quite joyful wine.
