A Real Gem: 2009 Domaine Raphet Pernand-Vergelesses “Les Belles Filles”

Domaine-Raphet-Pernand-Vergelesses-Les-Belles-Filles

Below the great Grand Cru vineyards of Corton lies the village of Pernand-Vergelesses.  While the wines never achieve the greatness of the former, there are many wonderful producers making great wine for a lot less money.

Case in point, 2009 Domaine Raphet Pernand-Vergelesses “Les Belles Filles”.  A real gem of a wine with 8 ½ years of age, old school, minimal new oak, lots of character, and drinking way above the appellation.
