Ratings and Tasting Notes:(RP=91) The 2018 Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Les Vergelesses is another success, delivering aromas of cherries, blackberries, exotic spices, raw cocoa and peonies. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered, with lively acids to underpin its gourmand core of fruit, it concludes with a nicely defined finish. (AM=89-92) While hardly invisible, the wood treatment is a bit more subtle on the poached plum, cassis and humus-inflected earth. There is very good punch to the well-detailed middle weight flavors that possess a beguiling texture that contrasts mildly to the nicely balanced, firm and moderately rustic finish.
