Pernand-Vergelesses « Les Combottes » (2020)

The "Pernand-Vergelesses Les Combottes" is a white wine made from the Chardonnay grape, produced in the picturesque village of Pernand-Vergelesses, located 6 km north of Beaune. The vineyard, approximately 40 years old, is situated on a slope extending from Corton Charlemagne, sharing a similar soil structure and exhibiting several analogies with the wines of that region.

This wine is cultivated following organic and biodynamic practices to maintain soil vitality and support microbiological activities, without the use of chemical inputs, and includes winter grassing and soil cultivation. The winemaking process is minimally interventionist, involving manual harvesting and selective picking in the vineyard. The grapes undergo a long and gradual direct pressing, allowing the musts to oxidize naturally.

The fermentation takes place in 350L and 400L barrels of several vintages, with less than 10% new wood, using indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged for 10 months without any additives, stirring, or racking, and is neither filtered nor fined.

Produced by Clos du Moulin Aux Moines, the wine has a white marl and clay-limestone soil, located at an altitude between 250-300 meters with a south-west exposure. The vineyard covers an area of 1.26 hectares, planted in 1982, with a vine density of 10,000 vines per hectare and a yield of 39 to 42 hectoliters per hectare. The wine has a potential aging period of 4 to 7 years.
