A complex, dry and racy white made of Burgundy's other white grape, Aligote. Though often overlooked or used as an accessory variety, Aligote has very charming qualities that pair amazingly with a wild range of cuisines. Pernot is a well-respected winery in the region, using not herbicides in farming and a rustic cellaring without temperature control. Tart sour pear and white cheese notes, absolutely enthralling, these wines always sell out and are limited in availability.
From the mouth of the importer (Louis/Dressner):
"The wines from the Pernot family in Puligny-Montrachet are well-known throughout the world for classic Puligny and Bâtard style. They have rich concentration and fruit, but more importantly, good acidity that allow them to age gracefully and harmoniously.
Paul Pernot and his sons, Paul and Michel, produce a range of white and red Burgundies. They are the largest owner of Puligny-Montrachet 1er cru les Folatières, and their lineup includes Bourgogne Blanc, Puligny-Montrachet AC, Puligny-Montachet les Folatières, Puligny-Montrachet les Pucelles, Bienvenue-Bâtard-Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet. Pernot prefers subtle oak flavors, although he has begun a new system of using more new oak for les Folatières and Bâtard-Montrachet."
