Some of the best sleeper white Burgs are from Pernand and this is my favorite. Have had every vintage since 11. Gorgeous nose. Lemon drop, discreet and sweet wood. Really air, also feral and mineral. Caramel nougat but more in a terroir baby corton charlie sense than a barrel sense. Palate is bracing, fresh and so complete with minerals to burn, sweet wood, green apple and pear and all so refined. Excellent. Wow. With air this is a 9.5. The finesse now is here.
