2020 Domaine Paul Pernot Cote D'Or Bourgogne Chardonnay Burgundy France

$29.99 USD

The 2020 Bourgogne Chardonnay Côte d'Or offers up a generous bouquet of pear, freshly baked bread and orange oil. Medium to full-bodied, open-knit and fleshy, it concludes with a saline finish. The 2020 vintage has turned out quite nicely chez Domaine Paul Pernot, where the house style remains fleshy, giving and front-loaded. For now, the domaine's wines are made in much the same way that they always have been: whole-cluster pressed, barrel fermented and matured for some 11 months, with bottling before the next harvest. After embracing DIAM wholeheartedly with the 2019 vintage, we're now back to natural cork (of superior quality) for the higher appellations and DIAMs for the rest. (WK) ~ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
