Our latest arrival from Burgundy’s much heralded 2009 vintage may be the best value we’ve discovered thus far. It is the Domaine Cornu-Camus Pernand Vergelesses. The village of Pernand Vergelesses is tucked in a small valley just behind the famous hill of Corton, home all of the Grand Cru red vineyards of the Cote de Beaune.
Possessing nice clean red fruit, elegance, and good mineral character, the 2009 Cornu-Camus Pernand Vergelesses is an exceptional value. You could cellar the wine 2-4 years, but we think it’s drinking so well right now that you’ll have a difficult time leaving the bottles alone that long.
The 2009 Cornu-Camus Pernand Vergelesses is Stephen Tanzer’s highest rated 2009 Red Burgundy under $50. In fact, it’s the highest rated Red Burgundy under $50 that he has ever reviewed. It’s a testament to just how good this Pernand Vergelesses really is!
A super value, we are offering the 2009 Cornu-Camus Pernand Vergelesses at just $21.99 per bottle. Plus, we’ve thrown in reduced shipping on six or more bottles!

"Good bright medium red. Superripe aromas of maraschino cherry and cinnamon lifted by a note of rose petal. Sweet, lush and fine-grained, with a solid core of sappy cherry and raspberry fruit brightened by energetic minerality. Displays the flamboyant ripeness of the vintage without going over the top. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins and lingering spice and red fruit notes. You can easily spend $30 these days for mere Bourgogne rouge."
