Jean Féry & Fils, ‘Les Vergelesses’ Premier Cru Pernand-Vergelesses 2016, Burgundy, France
Tasting Note: A red Burgundy that combines tart, red fruit and the Kimmeridgian-soil character for which the region is known.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red cherry, hibiscus, strawberry, blossom and boysenberry.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied pinot noir has tart, medium-intensity, red-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and slightly-stalky medium tannin.
There is some midpalate complexity coupled with some crushed-stone elements on the back palate of this enjoyable premier cru.
