Why we recommend this wine

The wine
As the "Composition Parcellaire" indicates this is a blend from different parcels within Puligny-Montrachet. Puligny-Montrachet is known for its limestone-rich soils, which contribute to the wine's minerality

The wine estate
Situated in the heart of Puligny-Montrachet, Domaine Pernot-Belicard is a small-scale winery covering approximately 6 hectares. Founded by Philippe Pernot – the grandson of the renowned Paul Pernot – the estate emerged in 2009 when Philippe inherited prized old-vine parcels from his wife`s family; hence the name Pernot-Belicard. They are gradually selling less and less of their wines to the négociants. In the vineyards, he cultivates the soils, de-buds aggressively to ensure quality grapes and takes pains to retain his old vines in good health. The grapes are harvested by hand, sorted by passing the grapes over a shaker table before being whole cluster pressed and then fermented in barrel. The wines remain there until August and then spend an additional three to six months in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with the fine lees before bottling. 
They do not have a website yet.

Food and wine
Puligny-Montrachet wines generally pair excellently with seafood, particularly shellfish and white fish. They also complement poultry dishes and creamy sauces. For vegetarians, try pairing with mushroom risotto or roasted vegetable dishes with herbs. Refer also to our food and wine pairing guide, click here.

Did you know?
In Burgundy it is not uncommon for people to own a small number of vines in a vineyard, sometimes not even enough to make a barrel of wine. It is quite noticeable from the road when you see a row of vines with grass and plants around them (indicating a ‘nurture nature’ approach) between rows without a hint of ground cover (indicating a traditional approach).
