2020 Domaine Ardhuy Les Boutières Pernand-Vergelesses
Domaine d'Ardhuy is a Burgundy house that quickly became one of the top 5 producers in the region. Very extensive choice of terroirs, and high quality from the base to the Cru's.
Gabriel Ardhuy helped with the 1947 harvest in Burgundy and met his future wife Eliane, daughter of a winegrower from Burgundy. They have seven daughters. The d'Ardhuy family has long owned the trading house Pierre André, headquartered at Château Corton-André. This will be sold in 2002, so that all attention can be paid to the own vineyards and the development of the own domain. The Ardhuy family owns more than 40 hectares of vineyards in magnificent plots and also owns a company in the Rhone. For both domains a subsidiary has been appointed to organize it. At the beginning of 2003, Carel Voorhuis, son of a lawyer from Maastricht who had previously bought a winery in the Jura, comes in as a 'régisseur'. And then things go fast: already in 2004, the Revue de Vins de France chose Ardhuy as number 3 of producers in the Côte de Beaune and as number 4 in the Côte de Nuits.
The vineyard for this elegant, fruity wine is over 100 years old: the vines were planted in 1913 at the foot of Corton Hill. The old vines give concentrated grapes with delicate fruit aromas. The clay soil provides fresh, slender acids in the wine.
The d'Ardhuy Les Boutières Pernand-Vergelesses is a wine in which the juicy, fruity character of the Pinot Noir comes into its own! In the nose inviting aromas of fresh fruit and currants. Frivolous and lively in taste with nicely integrated tannins and super fresh fruit, supported by light wood tones and elegant acids.
