You Save 10% ($16.00)
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Tasting notes: "The latest rendition of a bottling Pernot has produced sine 1973, the 2017 Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru La Pièce Sous Le Bois offers up attractive aromas of blanched almonds, white flowers and fresh apple, followed by a medium-bodied palate that's bright and chiseled, with less flesh on its bones than the other Pernot premiers crus, reflecting its high altitude location." - Wine Advocate
About the winery: Paul Pernot has run the Domaine since 1955, and now his three sons are assisting him. They own 19 hectares of fantastic vineyards in the Cote de Beaune but sell a vast majority of it to merchants, including Drouhin. The 20% or so that they bottle themselves are pure, elegant, and delicious representations of their best parcels. While most wines see some new oak and they only use barrels for three years, he bottles early to preserve freshness and avoid any noticeable oakiness.
