Domaine Rapet Père Et Fils Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Carradeux 2015
The 1er Cru of En Carradeux lies opposite the hill of Corton on an east-facing slope. The hillside is steep with sandy soil. After hand harvesting, the juice is fermented in oak barrels, a 30% proportion of which are new. After fermentation and malolactic the wine is aged in barrel for around 15 months. The aromas of toasted almonds and notes of gun-flint emerge alongside the rich fruit, white blossom and hint of toasty oak. The minerality underpins the whole thing and makes it a delicious food wine especially with fine fish and starters like pate en croute.
