Producer: Domaine Cornu
Wine Style: Red
Region: Burgundy, Côtes de Beaune
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
Description: Pernand-Vergelesses is an intense ruby colour with bluish highlights, or an intense crimson. In the early stages the nose is of strawberry, raspberry, and violet. When older, it evolves into underbrush and spices. The mouth is muscular with well-melted tannins.
Meaty and robust, its fleshy constitution has all the harmony one could wish for.
Serving temperature: 15 to 16°C.
Food Pairing: With its virile but superbly melted tannins its natural preference is for relatively forceful meats like veal, roasted, braised or in sauce, leg of lamb, feathered game, or grilled pork.
Roast beef would also yield to its charms. From the cheese board: Mont d’Or, Vacherin, Tomme de Savoie, Reblochon, Cîteaux.
