Winemaker's Notes

This vineyard is recognized by everyone as the prime site within the Pernand appellation. It sits at almost 300 meters altitude on a gradually sloping hill that faces southeast. The wines of the "Ile des Vergelesses" are consistently the most complex and satisfying reds of the appellation and present remarkable value. We always bottle this wine in magnums out of respect for its high quality and its ability to age gracefully. We are fortunate to have access to two barrels (600 bottles) each year

Critical Acclaim

"As is usually the case, this is the most elegant red in the Rollin range with a refined nose of various red berries, in particular currant, along with pungent stone notes though interestingly in 2010 there is a hint of the sauvage that is not usually present. The cool and ultra-pure middle weight flavors benefit from wonderfully fine-grained tannins that just add to the overall sense of refinement that the sophisticated mouth feel corroborates. There is also that wonderful sense of underlying tension to the focused, intense and impeccably well-balanced finish. Highly recommended and a wine that should reward up to a decade of cellar time."
