Pernet et Pernet L'Ambonnay Chardonnay
Made from two parcels: St Remy and Les Beurys. 2014 vintage. Given the location of this Maison it may seem odd to go with a Chardonnay from Ambonnay but that is what makes this cuvée so special! 50% barrel fermented and with only 3g/ltr it has a strict front end with a lovely perfume to it. It's so refined and the palate is sensual, delicate and shows a real power as it opens up. Saline, piercing with a lovely bitter play.
Kurt works with 9ha in Vertus, Ambonnay and Bouzy creating a very clean, crisp style. He started with a few organic parcels in 2014, of which we had the fortune of trying just this year. They are, on opening, strict but with air becoming joyful, generous and complex. We are super excited to see where this new Maison takes itself in the coming years.
