About the Winemaker & Vintage from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
An exciting new arrival on the scene in the Cote de Beaune is Alvina Pernot, granddaughter of Paul Pernot of Domaine Paul Pernot and cousin of Philippe Pernot of Domaine Pernot Belicard. After working for three years at her grandfather's domaine, Alvina and her husband, Philippe Abadie, set up a tiny domaine & maison in Puligny-Montrachet. In fact, all of their 2018 vintage was produced from Alvina's share of the Pernot family holdings, but only the Puligny-Montrachet La Rue Aux Vaches is harvested and pressed in house, as the rest of the cuvees come from Domaine Paul Pernot in must. That still permits some influence, however, as Alvina and her husband favor earlier-picked fruit and higher-altitude parcels within the large Pernot holdings.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2018 Meursault 1er Cru La Piece sous le Bois opens in the glass with notes of green apple, fresh hazelnuts, white flowers and a subtle touch of reduction. Medium to full-bodied, supple and textural, its charming core of fruit is underpinned by a bright spine of acidity, concluding with a precise, chalky finish." - William Kelley (13th Feb 2020)

90 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"A mild whiff of phenolic character sits atop the citrusy aromas of mineral reduction and floral wisps. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the notably more mineral-driven medium weight flavors that conclude in an agreeably dry, clean and focused finale. This understated effort could use a bit more complexity but it's already lovely and if held to maturity, could well merit a higher rating." (Jun 10, 2020)
