About this Item

1er Cru Pernand Vergelesses Ile des Vergelesses, 1996
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Owned by the same family since 1834, the Domaine Chandon de Briailles currently belongs to the Count and Countess Aymard-Claude de Nicolay and their children. Situated four kilometres north of Beaune in Côte d'Or, the domain is in the northern area of the Côte de Beaune in the famous Burgundian vineyard. The property extends over 13.7 hectares, shared equally among the three villages of Savigny-lès-Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton. François de Nicolay is the winemaker, aided by his sister Claude and the domaine's cellar master, Kojak. Since 1989, they have been using organic practices and a third of the domaine is cultivated biodynamically. No new oak is used and the wines are elegant and graceful.

Critics Ratings

‘The wine displays a healthy ruby/purple color and earthy black fruit aromas. This medium-to-full-bodied, rich, intense, focused, chewy-textured, yet vibrant wine is packed with flavors suggestive of ripe black cherries and sauteed porcini mushrooms. This offering has extremely appealing depth and layered fruit.’ - Pierre Rovani, Wine Advocate, 87-89/100 (Oct 1998)
