Les Horees Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Les Fichots
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Catharina Sadde of Les Horees began her career as a chef in her native Germany, working in Michelin star kitchens, before re-training as a winemaker with some of the greatest estates in Burgundy: Domaine de la Romanée Conti, Domaine Comte Armand, Marquis d’Angerville, and Cécile Tremblay. She is an enthusiastic practitioner of biodynamics, and has a penchant for low-sulphur and whole bunch work in the cellar.
This is outstanding premier cru red Burgundy, from one of the hidden gems of the Cote d'Or Pernand-Vergelesses. Silky tannins, with intense flavours of darker berry fruit, perfumed raspberry compote which give way to dank wet stone and savoury woody aromas. The finish is very mineral and just goes on, and on, and on...
