Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru "Les Vergelesses" 2012, Domaine Rapet
As with other wines in this flight tasted at the domaine, it was tricky to discern what was on offer in the bottle. This red Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru had an initial celery nose which then woke up and switched colour code to red currants. A tad chewy on the palate, it is well-constructued but not really enjoyable... certainly no thrill factor. Perhaps 2012 was a tough vintage for wines from the lesser appellations? Scores 18-20/30 for a Pernand 1er Cru.
