Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru "Les Vergelesses" 2014, Rollin Père & Fils
After being impressed by the Aloxe-Corton 2014 and not so impressed by the Pernand-Vergelesses rouge 2014 I was hoping for riper fruit, more flesh, in short something (for my palate) to grab hold of. This premier cru rouge from the top-rated "Les Vergelesses" vineyard didn't really deliver what I hoped for. A touch light, too skinny, erring on tangy, the fruit body isn't quite there. I wonder if the pinot grapes consistently achieved full maturity. A bit disappointing. Scores 18-20/30 for a Pernand 1er Cru rouge.
