Winemaker Notes

In the debut 2018 vintage, none of these wines saw any new oak, and they matured on the lees until they were racked for bottling in used barrels, mostly from François Frères. In 2019, some new cuvées from Caillerets, Pucelles and Corton-Charlemagne will enter the portfolio, the result of an exchange with another grower. And some barrels from Tonnellerie Rousseau, pre-used at Domaine Paul Pernot, will enter the "parc a fûts." This accomplished set of 2018s, in a style that's precise, elegant and delicately reductive, certainly bodes well for this new producer. Alvina and her husband seem to have a good sense of what they can achieve; and, backed by the Pernot inheritance, they have an enviable canvas of appellations on which to realize it. I will be following their evolution with interest and intend to report on their 2019s in the near future.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Folatières hails from the higher-altitude parcels within the Pernot family's copious holdings in this prime premier cru, and the wine is showing beautifully. Revealing aromas of white flowers, citrus oil and oatmeal, framed by a light touch of reduction, it's medium to full-bodied, textural and incisive, with lovely depth and dimension, concluding with a lively, mineral finish.
BH 92

This is the first wine to display much reduction and while it does blur the nuance, it's clear that the underlying fruit is both ripe and mildly exotic. Otherwise there is excellent richness to the succulent and seductively textured flavors that also flash evident minerality on the dry and clean finish. This isn't quite as persistent as the Clos de la Garenne, but my sense is that will change once the sulfur that is causing the reduction fully integrates.

Alvina Pernot, France
An exciting new arrival on the scene in the Côte de Beaune is Alvina Pernot, granddaughter of Paul Pernot of Domaine Paul Pernot and cousin of Philippe Pernot of Domaine Pernot Belicard. After working for three years at her grandfather's domaine, Alvina and her husband, Philippe Abadie, set up a tiny domaine & maison in Puligny-Montrachet. Alvina and her husband favor earlier-picked fruit and higher-altitude parcels within the large Pernot holdings. Alvina and her husband seem to have a good sense of what they can achieve; and, backed by the Pernot inheritance, they have an enviable canvas of appellations on which to realize it.
