2017 Maison Champy Pernand Vergelesses Clos de Bully Rouge 750ml
Lovely, dark garnet color, with a beautiful shine. Good aromatic intensity. The nose is very fresh, with notes of red and back fruit on a mineral, smoky background (marl, limestone). Well-defined, fresh and fruity on the palate. Good structure and balance, the tannins are present but fine. Persistent finish ending on fruitness and mineral freshness.
Pair this wine alongside charcuterie and red meat such as fillet of beef in sauce, roast lamb shank and a selection of cheeses.
This appellation, often underrated and equally often overperforming, has produced a ripe, well-poised wine. Its tannins and juicy red-cherry fruits are delicious and likely to age well. Drink this wine from 2022.
