Tasting Notes

About the domaine from the Burgundy Report: "Sat about halfway up the hillside village of Pernand-Vergelesses is the domaine of Dubreil-Fontaine. Christine is the 5th generation of the family since 1879 to run the domaine from Pernand. At 20 hectares and producing 20 different cuvées that cover all the hierarchy – it’s no small operation. Other than a 2001 Corton-Charlemagne which resides in my cellar, I only really noticed this domaine’s well-priced bottles since the offers I received for the 2005 vintage – three cuvées of which ended up in the cellar – in fact all wines that I first tasted, I decided to rebuy! Given its size and the apparent quality of its produce, I’m surprised that I don’t find more reference to it... The domaine is blessed with mature vines – almost all the vineyards average more than 40 years old. The grapes are all hand-picked and sorted then further triaged on a sorting-table. For the whites a bladder press is used – settling the juice for one day before barrel fermentation and a weekly batonnage until the malolactic fermentation starts. New oak is used at a level of about 25% for the villages wines up to 35% for the Corton-Charlemagne. For the reds, there is complete destemming before fermentation in large stainless-steel vats with some temperature control." (03/2009)
