Description

This small six-hectare domaine located in the heart of
Puligny-Montrachet is making rapid strides. Philippe Pernot
(a scion of the Paul Pernot dynasty) launched the Pernot
Belicard label in 2009, gradually selling less and less to the
négociants. In the vineyards, he cultivates the soils, de-buds
aggressively and takes pains to retain his old vines in good
health. The grapes are harvested by hand, with Philippe
typically among the earlier pickers in the village. Since 2014,
there’s more sorting, the grapes passing over a shaker table
before being whole cluster pressed. Initially, the wines were
bottled to make room for the new vintage, but Philippe, evidently an enquiring mind, felt that something was missing: now,
the wines stay in barrel until August, but spend an additional
three to six months in temperature controlled stainless steel
tanks with the fine lees. The result, he contends (and I concur), are wines that are more integrated and complete. These
are already very good wines, and Philippe possesses some
enviable parcels, but it is his desire to refine and improve that
marks this out as an estate to watch. – William Kelley, Robert
Parker’s Wine Advocate.
