2016 Paul Pernot

Our first offer of the 2016 Burgundy En Primeur campaign is an intriguing one. They are two wines that are difficult to get hold of even in prolific vintages: Paul Pernot’s 2016 Bourgogne Blanc and 2016 Puligny-Montrachet. As a new UK agent for this outstanding domaine, we are delighted to have secured an allocation for both our private clients and for our premium on-trade partners.


Andrew Jefford reported that "the whites from 2016 are sculpted and intense". Having tasted Paul Pernot's latest Bougogne Blanc and Puligny-Montrachet in the office, we we can confirm that they perfectly fit the respected Decanter columnist's description.


With 20 hectares, the Pernots hold the second largest area of vines in Puligny-Montrachet after Leflaive. However, very little is seen under their name. Around 80% is sold to well-respected négociants such as Joseph Drouhin, but the finest 20% is kept for their own label. Which is why Robert Parker notes that: "The Domaine Pernot makes some exquisite white winesHowever, few people are aware of just how stunning these wines can be."


Clive Coates MW is also a fan, highlighting Pernot as "a very good domaine" where the "quality is very high", resulting in "consistent enthusiastic notes of Pernot wines." When it comes to Puligny-Montrachet, Jasper Morris MW reports in Inside Burgundy that Paul Pernot "could be the outstanding domaine of that appellation."


Now home to the seventh generation to work the land, this incredibly traditional producer has barely changed in the last four decades, testament to the old adage: "if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it."


Stylistically the wines are true originals; weighty but with a charming rustic edge and a balancing elegance and purity. Don't miss out on this rare opportunity. And if you are interested in Paul Pernot's Premier and Grands Crus, please speak directly to your Account Manager.
