Pernand – Vergelesses

One of the many things I enjoy about living in Paris is having wine delivered. It feels decadent, urban, sophisticated.

We made a, for us, huge order yesterday. At the end we simply asked the cavistes to add a few bottles at her discretion. Today I opened a 2006 Pernand – Vergelesses, 1er Cru – Les Vergelesses, Domaine Dominique Guyon, Proprietaire A Aloxe-Corton.

I like it. Fruity, fairly light, I could serve this with cheese or pork but I doubt I’d put this up to beef. None of the nasty pepper taste I associate with pinot noir (is this pinot noir? lord I am so bad at this wine stuff). No earth flavors either. Just clean and fruity but not in a bad white zinfandel sort of fruity way. Fish? Not sure, might want it drier than this for fish.
