With age it develops a bouquet of honey and amber. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- The village - The small village of Pernand-Vergelesses is spread over a broad, south facing combe running alongside the Hill of Corton. The Producer - Domaine Jean Féry et Fils, a family estate for four generations is considered one of the most highly regarded growers in Burgundy. With the expertise of renowned Pascal Marchand, Jean Louis Féry is producing wines of astonishing depth and age worthiness from this small domaine of 10 hectares (25 acres). Situated in the heart of the Côte de Nuit, the domaine has expanded strategically to include prestigious Crus from a wide range of appellations from Gevrey-Chambertin of the Côte de Nuits to Puligny-Montrachet of the Côte de Beaune. All the wines are extremely limited production and allocated. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Region - Burgundy wine (Bourgogne or Vin de Bourgogne) is wine made in the Burgundy region in eastern France. The most famous wines produced here - those commonly referred to as Burgundies - are red wines made from Pinot Noir grapes or white wines made from Chardonnay grapes. Red and white wines are also made from other grape varieties, such as Gamay and Aligoté respectively. Small amounts of rosé and sparkling wine are also produced in the region. Chardonnay-dominated Chablis and Gamay-dominated Beaujolais are formally part of Burgundy wine region, but wines from those subregions are usually referred to by their own names rather than as "Burgundy wines". Burgundy has a higher number of appellations d'origine contrôlée (AOCs) than any other French region, and is often seen as the most terroir-conscious of the French wine regions. The various Burgundy AOCs are classified from carefully delineated Grand Cru vineyards down to more non-specific regional appellations. The practice of delineating vineyards by their terroir in Burgundy goes back to Medieval times, when various monasteries played a key role in developing the Burgundy wine industry.
