Winemaker 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

BH 92
Burghound.com
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.

Domaine Rollin Pere et Fils, Burgundy, France

Raymond Rollin was a vineyard worker in another wine business in the village, as had been his father before him. Despite his modest earnings, as the years passed he managed to acquire several parcels of vines that he then cultivated outside of his working hours (notably the parcel of Pernand-Vergelesses Premier Cru Ile des Vergelesses).

His son Maurice made a personal decision to set up his own business in 1955. It was Maurice who started to commercialise part of their production. He had a great sense of sharing, of welcoming and exchanging with people. Supported by his wife Christiane, they very quickly won over what still represents their base of clientele today. At the same time, they undertook the management of other parcels of vines on a rental basis and struggled to acquire new land.

In 1976, Maurice was joined by his son, Remi. Together, they planted the land that would take almost 10 hectares of the domain at the beginning of the 1980s. They then undertook building the working area necessary to cope with the growth. Thereafter, with Remi’s wife Agnes, they rapidly developed sales, in France and also abroad. In this way, since the middle of the 1990s, all the production is bottled and commercialised under their own label. They have always felt the need to progress in quality of production, while taking care to preserve and pass on their savoir-faire. Simon, their son, took up the challenge beside them in 2003, joined by his wife Caroline in 2009. Close at heart is their desire for the long life of their business while looking after the essential aspect of its working environment; namely the vine.

Burgundy

A legendary wine region setting the benchmark for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay worldwide, Burgundy is a perennial favorite of many wine lovers. After centuries of winemaking, the Burgundians have determined precisely which grape clone grows best on which plot of land, determined by the soil type, the elevation, and the angle in relation to the sun—this is a region firmly rooted in tradition and the concept of ‘terroir’ reigns supreme here. Because of the Napoleonic Code requiring equal distribution of property and land among all heirs, vineyard ownership in Burgundy is extremely fragmented, with some growers responsible for just one row or even one vine. This system has led to the predominance of the "negociant"—a merchant who purchases fruit from many different growers to vinify and bottle together.

Burgundy’s cool, marginal climate and Jurassic limestone soils are perfect for the production of elegant, savory, and mineral-driven Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with plenty of acidity. Vintage variation is of particular importance here, as weather conditions can be variable and unpredictable. Spring frost and hail are near-universal risks. The Côte d’Or, a long and narrow escarpment, forms the heart of the region, split into the Côte de Nuits to the north and the Côte de Beaune to the south. The former is home to many of the world’s finest Pinot Noir wines, while Chardonnay plays a much more prominent role in the latter, though outstanding red, white, and rosé are all produced throughout. Other key appellations include the Côte Chalonnaise, home to great value Pinot Noir and sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne; the Mâconnais, producing soft and round inexpensive Chardonnay; and Chablis, the northernmost region of Burgundy and an acidity-lover’s Chardonnay paradise.

Pinot Noir

View all wine

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
