Having had to deal with the challenges of 2016, Paul Pernot confessed that the vintage, “Gave us tiny yields due to the frost.” The worst damage was sustained in Pernot’s Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards, as well as essentially all his Pinot Noir parcels.  


Of course, Pernot needs little introduction, as he has been one of Puligny-Montrachet’s most prominent growers for decades. His red wines may fly a little under the radar, but they are worth seeking out. The Volnay Premier Cru Carelle sous la Chapelle vineyard lies in the center of the village, just to the east of the highway, next to Volnay’s chapel. 


Despite extremely low yields, the surviving fruit that was harvested was clean and ripe. Pernot’s 2016 Volnay is fresh and elegant, offering up aromas of dark berries, spice and wildflowers. The palate is medium bodied with fine tannins and a clean, dry finish. We recommend drinking from 2022-2035.
