Domaine Pernot-Belicard

It only seems like yesterday that Philippe Pernot, son of Paul, began producing wines under his own label from vineyards from his wife’s family but it is almost 10 years! In that time the progression has been clear both in the approach and the confidence with which Philippe has gone about things. Perhaps the biggest change has been the extension to the length of the élevage which has elongated the wines and add greater tension. He also picks earlier than he used to and it’s clear the wines have more vibrancy than they did in the early days. New oak is used sparingly, around 20% for the village wines and a touch more for the 1ers Crus. One day Philippe will extend his holdings when he inherits some of his father’s vineyards (Paul has almost 20 hectares of prime vineyards) but for now he is doing a grand job with the excellent holdings currently at his disposal.

    Not a vineyard we have much experience of but it lies close to Clos des Mouches, which is much better known and commands much higher prices! This will drink nicely from a fairly early stage and it is rounded and attractive with no harsh or crude edges, which one can find in Beaune. Not super complex but really attractive and good value. Drink from now.

  • Wine

    From 6 different vineyard parcels (Les Combes, Les Closeaux, Les Parties, Les Prés de la Dame, Les Champerriers and Les Gagères) all dotted around Puligny, totalling 2.4 hectares. This is fresh and bright with nice rounded fruit flavours and a delicatesse in keeping with the commune. Drink from 2016.

  • Wine

    This comes from a couple of plotsin Puligny is good locations. It is aged in 50% stainless steel and 50% oak. It is lively and fresh with some gentle minerality and really clean fruit. Works well and great value.

  • Wine

    Very nice minerality for a Meursault, but then it is Perrières! Deceptively backward, with good stoniness and dry extract on the finish. Plenty to come. Drink from 2016.

  • Wine

    Yields here were down at 23 hectolitres per hectare (only 65 cases of 12 were made) and the natural concentration is easy to see. There is plenty of power and strong extract but also very good freshness and bite. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    This makes a lovely contrast with the Puligny version. There is all the taut stonyness one looks for from the vineyard but then also the intense, compact, richness of serious Meursault, too. Impressive. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    This may also be a Perrières but it is very much Meursault over Puligny in style, with excellent weight and mouthfeel. Harmonious, in proportion and really concentrated. Drink from 2019.

  • Wine

    Philippe’s other Perrières but from Meursault this time. This is rich and quite compact with some floral notes mingling with almost lush but balanced fruit. Good density and matter here. Drink from 2020.

    This vineyard was not frosted at all. It is quite rich and broad but also quite backward and less `en place` than the Puligny 1ers Crus. Needs time; promising.

  • Wine

    0.2 of a hectare of 35 year old vines from high up on the slope of Champ Gain. Just 4 barrels made, of which one was new. Lively, with some delicacy and real precision and focus. An excellent example. Drink from 2020.

  • Wine

    This is chalkier still showing excellent aromas of flint, stone and salt. Light but pretty but with good weight and extract on the finish, where it really counts. Very Puligny.

  • Wine

    This is a most welcome new addition this year. There is a fair amount of rock in the soil here, providing nice underlying minerality. The fruit is nicely concentrated and compact and all seems very well knit. Drink from 2015.

  • Wine

    Citrus and white orchard fruit suffused aromas. Lovely texture before culminating in a lingering and well-balanced finish.

  • Wine

    Just 0.55 of a hectare, with an average vine age of just over 60 years. The 30% of new oak adds a touch of spice, but is otherwise already integrated. Very concentrated with lots of texture and very long flavours. Drink from 2020.

    This vineyard is almost two in one. Half is quite rich soil whilst the other half is stony and limestone heavy. These juxtaposed characteristics each bring something different to the table, providing weight and texture on the hand and energy and minerality on the other. Works very well

  • Wine

    Forty five year old vines create a very classic Puligny. Great intensity and plenty of extract, with minerality and a smokiness. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    This vineyard lies on the same plane Montrachet et Le Caillerets but further along on the edge of Meursault so you get a lovvely mix of racy stonyness and richer fruit flavours. Good balance and again subtle use of oak. Good length and drive on the finish. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    Particularly stoney soil resulted in a lovely, understated nose, and a surprisingly rich and rounded palate. Good length with a saline element. Drink from 2020.

  • Wine

    This has quite a rich attack but in fact finishes quite lean and taut. Appealing chalk elements underneath and good focus.

  • Wine

    Champgains is further up the slope , sitting above Folatieres and below La Garenne. Philippe only bought this plot of vines three years ago but another slice cam available last year but at between two and three times the price he paid just a couple of years earlier. It wasn`t a tough decision to turn it down! There is not much soil above the rock and the wine has a nice mineral edge to it. Drink from 2017.
