Domaine RAPET Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru "Ile Des Vergelesses" 2017
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes : Fruity bouquet of raspberries and cassis, a balanced, deep mouth and its finish supported by fine and elegant tannins.
About the winery : The long established Domaine Rapet (it makes much of a family tastevin dating back to 1765) covers 18 hectares in all, with grands crus Corton-Charlemagne, Corton and Corton Pougets, premiers crus Le Clos du Village and En Caradeux in white, along with red Les Vergelesses, Ile de Vergelesses and three from Beaune - Clos du Roi, Bressandes and Greves. With Vincent, son of Roland, at the helm and a new cuverie to work in, quality is high at the moment. They are fortunate to own over two hectares of their flagship appellation, Corton-Charlemagne.
