Philippe Pernot launched his first wine under his own domaine label in 2009 and is today "making rapid strides" (Wine Advocate). From a family of much praised Puligny producers, he is more than maintaining the clan name with wines of great finesse.

Philippe Pernot is son of the renowned Puligny producer Paul Pernot and is certainly playing his part in keeping up the reputation of the family name. He and his wife (the Belicard side) launched their own domaine in 2009, with just six hectares of vines, all in Puligny. They started by selling their grapes to négociants, but, gradually, with confidence, making more and more of the wines themselves. Philippe is meticulous in his methods – both in the vineyard and in the cellar. He likes to pick quite early, all by hand, with hand sorting at the cellar too. The wines stay in barrel, on lees until August, with just 20% of this wine going into new barrels. A fine, expressive white Burgundy already, it'll continue to improve. Serve just cool.
"Expressive bouquet of ripe citrus fruits, apple blossom and blanched almonds"
