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. 

Aromas of blackberry, licorice, violets. Intense yet not primary, good balance yet deeply flavored. Bramble fruit, minerals.

Soil
Bordering Savigny, ‘Les Vergelesses’ faces southeast, mid-slope, from 720 to 810 feet in altitude. Soils higher up on the slope are increasingly stony, with clay-rich subsoils.
Winemaking
Hand-harvested. Destemmed; fermented on indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks. Aged in older French barrels (10% new) for one year. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
