Our top white Burgundy, and our only Chardonnay Grand Cru, this wine is fit for a king! Give it a few years to open up, and it will taste lush, rich, and nectary.

  • Earth and truffles on the nose. Medium body, but quietly powerful. The flavors seem to expand on the palate. A medicinal note and restrained, tightly wrapped fruit create focus. Elegant but with solidity of structure and a creamy, mouth-coating texture. The fruit is nicely balanced by acidity. Moderately long, with an interesting chalky note on the finish. Still young. Try again in 2016–2017. Likely to age gracefully for another five years beyond that.

    Food pairing: Truffle-based pasta dishes; baked or roasted chicken with truffles; vegetable risotto

Domaine Pierre Marey et Fils

A well-kept secret. For seven generations. That is the best way to describe Domaine Pierre Marey et Fils. Finding it requires venturing high to the top of the small town of Pernand-Vergelesses, where it sits neatly tucked on each side of a steep winding street. We have found it well worth the effort.
