Domaine Pernot-Belicard

Philippe Pernot’s father still runs the famous 17-hectare family domaine in Puligny-Montrachet. Sometime in the future he will inherit his third of the domaine but for now he is concentrating on the 6 hectares of vines that make up Pernot-Belicard, the domaine that came from his marriage to Mademoiselle Belicard. Her father was more of a fruit grower than winemaker and sold off most of what he produced. In contrast Philippe is more interested in bottling under his own name and has let contracts with négociants run their course, allowing him to hold on to much more of his fruit. His first vintage was as recent as 2009 and with each vintage since the quality of wine has progressed with big leaps being made with the 2011s, 2012s and most recently 2013s. Space in both the cuverie and the cave has always been at a premium, and up until the 2012 vintage Philippe would bottle all his cuvées a year after harvest. However, the 2013 vintage saw him extend the length of élevage he gave his wines and results were impressive. Since establishing the domaine Philippe has bought more vineyards, augmenting the range of 1ers Crus Pulignys. The wines see between 20 and 35% new oak and currently drink well after a few years in bottle. The old vine cuvée of Meursault is produced from especially old vines (around 70 years) but there are plenty of old vines throughout the domaine.

    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

    Four parcels, all around Puligny, are blended together to make this wine and it seems really nicely put together. There is some roundness of fruit, nice acid, decent extract on the finish and good weight. A really nice entry to the range. Drink from 2014.

  • 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.

  • Awaiting Tasting Note

  • 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 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.

  • Wine

    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

    This generally comes from 2 parcels but one was badly hit by frost so this year most of the fruit comes from the plot close to Puligny which means the wine is lighter and more Puligny-like than usual. Good richnes of fruit on the back palate.

  • 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

    Perrières lies right in the heart of the village yet the good examples such as this always seem to have a lovely mix of pure, stone fruit and white flowers. This is zesty and lively with depth and drive and real concentration. Top notch. Drink from 2017

  • Wine

    Old vines again here (sixty years old) and a lot of small berries, meaning great concentration without being overworked. This is saline and mineral and really mouthwatering. Certainly the best Puligny ever made at this domaine. Drink from 2019

  • 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

    The vines here are forty five years old. There is a nice hint of flinty smokiness, excellent extract on the palate and really good bite. Stylish and very Puligny. Fine example. Drink from 2017.

  • 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 is a very pretty Puligny, with clean, delicate fruit and hints of flowers and stone. Definitive

  • 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.
