To the eye, Pernand-Vergelesses red is an intense ruby colour with bluish highlights, or an intense crimson. In the early stages the nose is of strawberry, raspberry, and violet. When older, it evolves into underbrush and spices. The mouth is unaggressive but muscular with well-melted tannins. Meaty and robust, its fleshy constitution has all the harmony one could wish for.
The Pernand-Vergelesses white is white gold or pale yellow turning darker gold with age. It boasts aromas of white flowers, (may, acacia) at first ; later, notes of amber, honey and spices. On the palate it is mineral, harmonious and easy to like.
