Lot #202. Meuneveaux Pernand-Vergelesses 2015

Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: . NM.
"The 2015 Pernand-Vergelesses Village, which incidentally has been re-grafted with Chardonnay in 2016, has candied orange peel infusing the red plum and strawberry aromas, a touch of patisserie in the background. The palate is balanced . . . with a light red cherry and brown sugar-tinged finish. Whilst this domaine is not as well known as others in this report, it is always important to keep track of the young winemakers. Freddy Meuneveaux (and he did say that it was 'Freddy' and not 'Frédéric') told me that his whites were bottled the first week of September, whilst the red wines had been racked the previous week. He found his 2015s sweet and fruit-driven and was careful with the punching down to avoid any over-extraction, conducting pumping over when he felt it was the right thing to do. 'I was thinking that the vintage is similar to 2009 and 2012,' he remarked. 'We compare it with 2005 in terms of weather' . . . . the Corton-Bresandes is superb and the Aloxe-Corton Village demonstrated more cohesion than the premier cru at present. This is still a domaine to keep an eye on." Wine Advocate #228, Dec 2016
