2018, Domaine Chandon de Briailles, PERNAND-VERGELESSES, 1er Cru, "Les Vergelesses"

The 2018 Pernand-Vergelesses Les Vergelesses 1er Cru comes from a single parcel on red clayey soils. It has an ample bouquet of black cherries mixed with cranberry and hints of fig, nicely defined with impressive intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip on the entry. Quite a dense Pernand-Vergelesses, this, with a saline and black-olive-tinged finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. Very fine.
89-91 Neal Martin, Vinous.

An attractively spiced nose features notes of violet, black cherry and earth. The racy, intense and extract-rich medium-bodied flavours possess good muscle that carries over to the very firm, slightly warm and sweet finish. I suspect that the sweetness will gradually dissipate.
