Claude de Nicolay crafts some of our favorite terroir-driven Burgundies from the vineyards in and around the hill of Corton. Île des Vergelesses is a wonderfully situated premier cru vineyard in the middle of the slope, facing the hill of Corton to the south east. The wine is lush and open with delicate white flowers and ripe golden apple on the nose. It has a rich texture balanced against zesty acidity giving a mouthwatering presence on the palate. It calls for richer foods and can easily be counted as one of the best premier crus whites in the area. Fermented in cement and raised in neutral barrels with minimal new wood. Certified Biodynamic since 2005.
