Red: to the eye, Pernand-Vergelesses 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.
White: this wine 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.
