Pernand-Vergelesses is located northwest of Beaune. The very steep slopes here enjoy good south-easterly exposure and white marl soils, predominantly limestone. The 1er Cru Sous Frètille is at the top of the Corton hill, just above the Gran Cru Corton Charlemagne itself. Grapes are hand-harvested and then carried in small boxes to the cellars, where they are sorted. Fermentation takes place in oak casks between 64-68°F. Lees are stirred in the casks twice a week. The wine is aged for 15 months in French oak barrels.
A brilliant golden color, with flowery aromas and hints of hazelnuts. An elegant wine with a lot of finesse and freshness. Serve with cooked fish or white meat with creamy sauces.
