Notes from North Berkeley Imports:

"It’s easy to miss the petite hamlet of Pernand-Vergelesses, hiding behind bulk of the noble Corton hill. Yet this Côte de Beaune village, with its impeccable vineyards, is a treasure trove of refined Burgundy wines. For more than three generations, the Delarche family has crafted authentic, earthy and expressive Burgundy in Pernand, much under the radar of the Burgundy cognoscenti. Yet Delarche Burgundy offers a clarity and purity of flavor that is captivating; whites are creamy and concentrated, taking a cue from Corton-Charlemagne, while reds are spicy and refined, seductive from the moment they’re bottled yet able to age effortlessly for years.

Estate vines were planted by winemaker Etienne Delarche’s father in ‘Renardes,’ part of the larger Corton grand cru vineyard. Facing southeast, vines sit at 900 feet in altitude; the slope’s stony soils mix brown limestone and iron-rich marl."
